From the early days of “second life” in the late nineties where you could develop a second life thanks to a custom avatar in a fully digitized version of Paris to the “Ready Player One” I have always been fascinated by virtual reality. I am already looking forward to our next global convention in a fully virtual reality mode. Obviously, the technology is still a few steps away from a fully functional VR but we can see where we are heading and it looks great! And what about the augmented reality applications blending digital 3d models and the real world. Do you remember the time where AR was limited to Pokémon hunting? Well, strap-on as AR has been progressing at full steam. You can now have virtual fitting rooms, guidance systems, assembly instructions and virtual medical assistants.
In this issue of This Week in Consulting, we explore how AR and VR will impact multiple sectors in the years to come, how much it costs to leverage those technologies and what the biggest trends in the industry are.
Enjoy the read. Feel free to comment. Would love to hear your views.
