What’s up with Augmented Reality.
Bert Waltniel // Bazookas
Unlike virtual reality, where a complete virtual world is created, augmented reality is a kind of extension of reality through technology. Meanwhile, AR has also been on a serious advance since the arrival of ARKit and ARCore.
The phenomenon of virtual reality is just as hype and with the introduction of the Oculus Rift several companies have also started using VR for their business. Already Â in 2014, Volvo launched the test drive without a car using an Oculus Rift. The car manufacturer put the headlines together with Google to find out how they could simulate the best experience of a test drive, without actually using the car.
"It is a matter of thinking 'out of the box'. If you can create an almost-real experience, you give the consumer a unique experience that can be decisive for a purchase decision "
Augmented Reality has already had its influence in the business world. For example, Vuzix already worked with Airbus to make the process of building an Airbus more efficient through Smart Glasses. When wearing these Smart Glasses, relevant information is displayed when installing the cabin. They also enable the wearer to work very precisely when it comes to placement.
The following topics will be discussed
What is Augmented Reality?
Why should we need it?
AR hardware vs. Mobile AR
Platform comparison ARCore vs ARkit
Possibilities now vs future
