Applications Of Augmented And Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality

Many people are familiar with the term ‘virtual reality’ but are unsure about the uses of this technology. Gaming is an obvious virtual reality application as are virtual worlds but there are a whole hosts of uses for virtual reality – some of which are more challenging or unusual than others.

Where is virtual reality used?

Here is a list of the many applications of virtual reality:

Virtual Reality in the Military

Virtual Reality in Education

Virtual Reality in Healthcare

Virtual Reality in Entertainment

Virtual Reality in Fashion

Virtual Reality and Heritage

Virtual Reality in Business

Virtual Reality in Engineering

Virtual Reality in Sport

Virtual Reality in Media

Virtual Reality and Scientific Visualization

Virtual Reality in Telecommunications

Virtual Reality in Construction

Virtual Reality in Film

Virtual Reality Programming languages
Some of these will be more familiar than others but visit any of these to find out more about a particular use of virtual reality.

There are many more uses of VR than first realised which range from academic research through to engineering, design, business, the arts and entertainment.

But irrespective of the use, virtual reality produces a set of data which is then used to develop new models, training methods, communication and interaction. In many ways the possibilities are endless.

The only stumbling blocks are time, costs and technological limitations. Virtual reality systems such as a CAVE system are expensive and time-consuming to develop. Plus there are issues of ergonomics, specifically the need to design systems which are ‘user-friendly’ and not likely to cause problems such as motion sickness.

Applications Of Augmented Reality

What is augmented reality (AR)?

When someone talks about AR, they are referring to technology that overlays information and virtual objects on real-world scenes in real-time. It uses the existing environment and adds information to it to make a new artificial environment. Many developers are creating augmented reality apps, and this has opened up the technology to many applications and a broader audience. If you’ve watched an American football game since 1998, you likely have seen the down line portrayed as a yellow line that moved down the field. That is an example of an augmented reality application.

Augmented reality in healthcare

There are some incredibly exciting applications for augmented reality in healthcare from allowing medical students to

train in AR environments to telemedicine options that enable medical professionals to interact with patients. In critical

situations, augmented reality applications can deliver real-time information to the treatment area to support diagnosis,

surgery and treatment plans. AccuVein is a handheld device that can scan the vein network of a patient that leads to a 45%

reduction in escalations. Surgeons can plan procedures before making the first cut, models can be made of tumors, and AR

diagnostic tools can model disease conditions. Deloitte Research asserts that AR will disrupt the business model and

operations of healthcare.

AR for fun

Rather than increase sales, sometimes AR is just created for fun or to engage with customers such as the Bic DrawyBook app

or teeth brushing games from Georgia-Pacific’s Dixie brand.

From gaming to construction to AR in browsers that provide detail for what the camera displays, augmented reality apps are

being developed at a rapid pace to enhance many industries. As additional ideas get developed, we can expect augmented

reality applications to touch many more aspects of our lives.
