In virtual reality, we’re placing the viewer inside a moment or a story… made possible by sound and visual technology that’s actually tricking the brain into believing it’s somewhere else
Imagine virtual training and certification programs for everyone from sales reps to aerospace engineers. There also will be a whole new wave of virtual meeting and collaboration tools that not only empower remote workers, but save on travel and training costs. The possibilities of VR in the enterprise are endless..
This global distribution of VR content and access will undoubtedly influence a pedagogical shift as these new technologies allow a literature teacher in Chicago to “take” her students to Verona to look at the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, or a teacher in the Bronx to “bring” her Ancient Civilizations class to the ancient Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza.
[Smart glasses] with augmented reality (AR) and head-mounted cameras can increase the efficiency of technicians, engineers and other workers in field service, maintenance, healthcare and manufacturing roles… Wearable technology could potentially save the field service industry alone $1 billion
Internet of Things refers to the integration of sensors onto machinery and heavy equipment. Companies will now be able to integrate real-time machine-to-machine communication into their operations, and this will ultimately allow them to save time and money. Indeed, industrial firms ready to seize the opportunity will likely benefit from an additional $500 billion EBIT every year.
But it [augmented reality] will happen, it will happen in a big way, and we will wonder when it does, how we ever lived without it. Like we wonder how we lived without our phone today
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality will unleash a creative revolution in education unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
