Examples of Uses
For training purposes, for example, VR and AR offers the potential to immerse ourselves in any situation that can be simulated on a computer. Increasingly photorealistic visuals "trick" our brain into believing, to varying extents, that what we are seeing is real, allowing us to monitor, and learn from, our interactions. There really are no limits, so scenarios can be re-created that simply could not be mimicked in the real world – either due to excessive cost or danger - such as pilot training and in military environments. The main advantage being is if something goes wrong – you just hit the reset switch – no damage done.
Whereas, in a manufacturing and production-driven businesses, VR allows every characteristic of a part, process or mechanism to be simulated and tested. Performance or reliability can be tested and examined under any condition, far more cost-effectively, quickly and safely. Millions can be saved by eliminating the need to build full-scale working prototypes, by carrying out initial exploration of ideas in VR. Today this is used in aircraft design, with major manufacturers extensively using simulated digital spaces to design and test new features and models.
Businesses are already deploying VR capability and it will fast become the norm - if a customer wants to try out a new car, try some furniture for size or review their new kitchen design, VR will let them do it without leaving their home. Of course, real-world showrooms are likely to remain a part of the marketing landscape for some time, as for many products there will be a point where consumers want to see and feel the physical product. But for early-stage market research and quickly getting an overview of a brand’s product range, VR and AR will increasingly offer a convenient alternative.
