AR and VR Applications
Augmented reality(AR) is used to enhance natural environments or situations and offer perceptually enriched experiences. With the help of advanced AR technologies, the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally impressionable. Information about the environment and its objects is overlaid on the real world. Augmented reality also has a lot of potential in the gathering and sharing of tacit knowledge. Augmentation techniques are typically performed in real time and in semantic context with environmental elements.
Similarly Virtual reality(VR) is the creation of a virtual environment presented to our senses in such a way that we experience it as if we were really there. It has both entertainment and serious uses.
Evamp & Saanga has implemented several that have utilized features based on both AR and VR within the iOS and android platforms. This technology is becoming cheaper and more widespread, we can expect to see many more innovative uses for the technology in the future. Perhaps we may see a shift in the fundamental way in which we communicate and work thanks to the possibilities of AR and VR.
