From Consumer to Enterprise: Why Apple will change Augmented Reality

Apple ARKit

These days, most of the news around Augmented Reality are about Apple and its new ARKit — a development tool to place digital objects into real scenery and display it on iPhones and iPads. Still in its beta version, ARKit has started a second wave of public awareness for AR after the most successful mobile game in history: Pokémon Go. With the consumer market now finally entering the AR world, it is little known that the enterprise sector has already been using the new technology for many years — often in stealth mode with prototypes and proof of concepts as internal apps.

Reality Report #4: Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality

Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality

Each Reality Report I try to cover all the latest monthly Augmented, Mixed and Virtual news. This month was unusual with all the major developments coming all at once last week.  The „Week of Wow!“ began with the live streams from Facebook’s F8 conference… Two years ago, Mark Zuckerberg said that AR is the platform of the future. Now he showed why. Also, HP is back in the game: the tech dinosaur has invested in the well-known VR Fund. And, as usual, there is no Reality Report without news from Snap – their partner Shazam has confirmed to work on AR. Reports also say that the Vive will get eye-tracking and Google Earth is on the Rift. Get excited and enjoy reading the Reality Report! […]
