Welcome to our recurring post, 3D Interactive Tech Talk, highlighting how interactive technology is being used right now and where it’s headed.
The Manager’s Guide to Augmented Reality
Augmented reality is the bridge between the digital and the physical that is set to transform our lives. “AR will become the new interface between humans and machines.” It’s already being used in automobiles with windshield displays that pop up in the driver’s line of vision to provide safety alerts without having to look away from the road, and many big names from Facebook to the military are looking at technology to advance everything from online experiences to tactical training.
This Harvard Business Review Guide is a roadmap covering AR, with examples of the powerful visualizations it offers. Can you afford to NOT know what it’s all about?
83% of Industrial Companies Interested in AR
Momentum is building for AR technology adoption in enterprises, particularly in industrial companies. “Toshiba revealed 83 percent interest in AR deployment in the next 3 years. That’s 89 percent for engineering, 83 percent for logistics, and 77 percent for manufacturing.”
These companies may not be ready for it, but they want it. And building awareness around the necessity of the latest technology is usually a big hurdle to overcome. This bodes very well for the actual adoption rate (once the technology matches the hype).
