AR, VR and MR
Let’s begin by defining AR, VR and MR. Augmented Reality (AR) is a view of the physical real world along with elements that are “augmented.” An example is a store app that allows you to visualize a piece of furniture in your own home. Virtual Reality (VR) puts you in a completely new artificial environment, and you feel like you are no longer in your office, at home, on the train ... you get the idea. Mixed Reality (MR) combines digitally rendered objects, locates them in our real environment and you can interact in real time.
It’s not only fun and games. Companies are harnessing these technologies with viable business cases. The global augmented reality market share was valued at USD 3.33 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach approximately USD 133.78 Billion in 2021. AR / VR Application started with training, and has branched into connecting remote workers, warehouse and logistics, data & analytics visualization and assisting with complex tasks.
It's time to think about your business benefit from AR, VR or MR. Now is the time to Invent the Future!
