Augmented and Virtual Reality in Singapore, is more than a technology for catching fun or playing games. It can contribute immensely to the engineering industry and has the potential to open the doors to limitless possibilities for many engineering projects.
VR and AR can help businesses and governments make more money from their engineering projects. Therefore it won’t be long before it becomes the norm in this industry. In this article, there will be a look at four reasons why AR and VR in engineering will be massive in the nearest future.
These are the four reasons to be discussed:
- It Creates an Immersive Simulation Experience
- It Creates Better Training Experiences for New Engineers
- It Can be Used for Better Product Designs
- It Saves Costs In the Long Run
While virtual and augmented reality has gained lots of attention in recent times, they are not new technologies and have been around for many years. Looking at the progress of the technology over the years, there is no doubt that virtual and augmented reality would have an impact on a lot of industries including the business industry.
How would this technology impact businesses in the nearest future, let’s say ten years? Without wasting much time, let’s take a look at the ways in which virtual and augmented reality would disrupt businesses.
What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality is one of the most exciting technologies that have found it’s way into the lives of companies as a way to engage with customers. But what is Augmented Reality (AR)? Simply put, it is the combination of an actual environment plus digital information. At a Ted Talk recorded in February 2016, Alex Kipman, the man behind the Windows Holographic, described AR as a technology that works to “bring 3D holographic content right into our world, enhancing the way we experience life beyond our ordinary range of perceptions’. This enhancement of the real world creates an ‘augmented’ world. We call this Augmented Reality.
