The future of AR and VR for Business

A term that’s gaining a lot of traction and heard increasingly often is Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR). The reason for this is because AR & VR are the next phase in the technological advancement that we have achieved. Similar to the smartphone when it first came out, AR/VR tech will start to change the way we do business and interact with the world on a daily basis.  This is the future of technology so it is essential to understand how it can impact the way business is done in order to stay ahead.

What exactly is AR & VR?

AR & VR although usually discussed together have significant differences while also sharing similar features.

  • Virtual Reality – VR usually immerses the user in a virtual environment using a headset that essentially isolates you from the real world
  • Augmented Reality – AR on the other hand projects virtual objects and information onto the real world around you

Even though VR can give you the opportunity to create and explore any number of virtual worlds it is still restricted as far as the user is concerned. For instance the best VR systems (such as Oculus Rift) will not allow you to move too far away from the hardware, and even though there are less immersive options (with smaller hardware) for instance Samsung’s Gear VR, you wouldn’t generally be wearing one around while out and about.

AR on the other hand works while the user moves around relatively free, so information and objects are projected onto what you see. This can be done in a variety of ways for instance the mobile phone (how the popular Pokémon Go app works) or even cutting edge technology like the Microsoft HoloLens (which is a battery powered mixed platform with both AR and VR capabilities).

What impact does it have on business?

A 360 degree immersive experience can significantly change the way people do many things and can especially impact business in several ways. The rapid way that technology advances opens new opportunity for businesses. Just like the people who embraced mobile technologies and social media – businesses that become early adopters of AR & VR tech will be able to leverage this to stay ahead of the competition within their respective industries. Discussed below are some business uses of AR & VR...
