Spatial Computing – AR/VR/MR
Augmented Reality brings elements of the digital world to a person’s experience of the real world. And AR does this, not just by viewing data, but by integrating immersive senses in 3D, so that the user perceives the data as a natural part of the environment.
Imagine going for a walk around town. You point your smartphone across the road and receive information about how and when the houses were built. Or you get to know how many pedestrians walk through the street each day. Or you will receive a prediction of how busy the roads are on Friday when you have invited a sweet girl or guy on the first date.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are the next logical step in instruction, teaching and learning. It will save businesses billions of dollars in the coming years – from everything from travel and lifestyle restructuring to energy consumption cuts. Thus, VR and AR will not only be a good business but will also be an invaluable tool when dealing with the climate challenge.
Picture this – In a 3D universe that pops up parallel to where you are, you receive news and all sorts of other information relevant to you in the given situation – no matter where in the world you are – in your native language and based on your own preferences.
You spend a winter evening in your car on the way home from work. You can easily navigate home while receiving traffic and weather updates.
