Recent innovation in the field of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) has brought new devices on the market. Many industries see a big future in AR business and applications. The present research focuses on the user input performance of these AR-devices. This paper proposes an evaluation procedure using a server based input interface with a built-in assessment control. The evaluation is performed by test persons exposed to two AR devices: Microsoft Hololens and Epson Moverio BT-200. A conventional mouse input is used as a benchmark. The assessment reveals a trend of strength and weaknesses of each device and can orient developers to create more optimized AR experiences and improve the user experience.
