It wasn't too long ago that Pokémon Go became wildly popular. This technology, which has been around for years, is called augmented reality (AR). AR superimposes computer graphics on top of your real-world view, creating a blended view that augments the real world.
AR application development has changed the face of gaming and smartphone apps.
Augmented reality apps include things like:
- Interactive map overlays
- Virtual showrooms
- 3D product viewing for online shoppers
- Multi-player games
- Training applications for the workplace
- AR geolocation and GPS
Virtual Reality Application Development
Unlike augmented reality, virtual reality (VR) presents a completely different reality by immersing users both visually and auditorily in a virtual world that mimics the real world. This is typically accomplished using special hardware devices along with a virtual reality application.
Virtual reality takes the risk out of activities that are too dangerous, expensive, or impractical to do in real life.
Examples of this could include:
- Exploring locations around the world without leaving the comfort of home
- Simulated workplace training for surgeons, fighter pilots, and other professions
- Education apps to engage students
- Next-level gaming experiences
- VR construction projects
- Much more
