Augmented Reality is growing fast in popularity, thanks to endless opportunities in the marketing world to promote products, enhance user experience and increase engagement. 

Here are five facts to help you learn a bit more about Augmented Reality from ViewAR

1. Early Bloomer

Augmented reality has its roots in 1968 when Ivan Sutherland – an American computer scientist created with the first head-mounted display system at Harvard university. It showed simple wireframe drawings and computer-generated graphics.

Because of the aforementioned studies, more companies are now investing in workforce development, with budgets increasing by over 15% every year on average.

2. VR and AR aren’t twins

Even though virtual reality may seem similar to augmented reality, it is merely its second cousin.
VR replaces the world around you with a simulated one letting you experience a new, virtual, sometimes even unreal concepts. AR, on the other hand, overlays virtual objects on physical elements to enhance your current perception of the reality.

One of the advantages of AR over VR is that you need not to be completely isolated from the real world. In the case of VR, you are completely cut off from the real world. One common problem of VR is that after playing games in the completely virtual environment, people generally complain about nausea. Another advantage of AR is that it can be experienced easily with Smartphone, whereas for VR, some form of HMD is required.

3. Incredible growth

By 2017 AR applications are predicted to generate $300 billion revenue, whereas in 2014 it generated ‘only’ around $5 billion. Additionally, by 2020, AR is bound to have more than one billion users worldwide.

4. Good enough for NASA

Since it can augment the effectiveness of navigation devices, no wonder it was applied far wider than only for commercial purposes.  In 1999, NASA’s x-38 was flown utilizing a special AR dashboard for navigation purposes.

5. Personal trainer

‘Pokémon go’, which is a perfect example of AR application, caused quite an impact recently. Its enthusiasts realize that by trying to “catch them all” they actually need to move around. No wonder that a significant number of AR applications try to come up with ideas to help us stay healthy and make a bigger impact on us.

The Social Media Guru explains this trend as a way to create a more immersive, aesthetic experience for users. Through social media, people have the feeling of not just experiencing things with others but also of learning and growing because of the ways others interact with you within the experience.

Another industry using AR is Real Estate. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two powerful technologies making a big impact in the real estate industry. By integrating AR and VR technologies into their businesses, real estate professionals are changing the way people experience home buying, building and selling; whether it’s viewing an AR 3D building through interactive print or virtually standing inside your future home. VR and AR are quickly growing industries that have a big influence on users. Using these techniques can make your real estate seo generate a big impact.

  2. I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
