Jim Ladlee, assistant director of energy, business and community vitality programs at Penn State Extension, demonstrates an augmented reality headset.

Ladlee believes AR could be used to streamline veterinary care and farm machinery repair. Ladlee gave the demonstration Aug. 11 during a joint meeting of the Pennsylvania House and Senate ag committees at Ag Progress Days.
