As Virtual and Augmented Reality make technological strides as to do their business applications. With an increase in demand for remote working diversity, many companies are looking at the benefits of an AR/VR within a working environment. Have you ever contemplated holding a virtual meeting with your staff or perhaps thought about conducting in depth training using real world scenarios virtually? COVID-19 has led to a push for innovative collaboration within the workplace and VR/AR seems to be a suitable solution.
The uses do not stop there. Analysts predict the use of VR in health care, architecture, retail, construction, and engineering purchases will all start to pick up very soon. Imagine being able to carry out a site inspection or review the blueprints of a potential build as an interactive 3D model from the comfort of your own home, it is no surprise that VR is becoming a necessary enterprise, with the space expected to grow from £641 million in 2018 to £4.4 billion in 2023.
VR-enhanced medical training is also well underway, José Morey of Liberty BioSecurity believes that the technologies involved will ‘evolve exponentially’ as the pandemic subsides. In schools, virtual learning has already taken on a great importance during the COVID-19 pandemic, and VR/AR can make this a more immersive and interactive experience for learners. With VR and AR’s potential gradually being realized it seems this technology is here to stay and may find its way to your business in the near future.
