How extended reality changes the design game
01 April 2019
Virtual reality was once seen by many as an additional layer to the entertainment industry. Then it was Augmented Reality that was the next big thing (it’s still going to be pretty big).
Now we talk Extended Reality, to reflect the giant, in fact magic, leaps that have been made with the technology to take it from entertainment gimmick to something that will dramatically overhaul modern industrial design processes.
At first, the required headsets were cumbersome and required large backpacks, while processing power was not powerful enough to provide the seamless, immersive experience for other industries. But over time the technology has matured and begun to demonstrate its capabilities beyond movies and video games. In turn, understanding of the technology has improved and use cases for extended reality (which is basically a fusion of all the mixed realities technology) have grown and permeated across a multitude of sectors.
Industries from aviation to architecture are now beginning to harness the power of extended reality to rapidly design and test products and ideas, bringing about a new era of design collaboration. Offering a new way of working, extended reality offers numerous benefits.
