BUILDING REVOLUTIONARY SOLUTIONS BY EMPHASIZING ON AR & VR
In 1968, the world witnessed a revolutionary breakthrough in the field of VR with the first head-mounted VR display (Sword of Damocles), which could connect to a computer. Since then, two generations have passed and digitization has taken the VR experience to the next level. Over the years, VR has been incorporated in various uses, like training in military and sports, treating post-traumatic stress and medical surgeries to education and fashion; thereby, cultivating our way of life.
Parallelly, the advent of AR since 1990 has elevated virtual interaction with the environment by enhancing the perception of reality through computer-generated data. Its valuable application can be seen in Archaeology, Architecture, Urban design and planning, STEM education, Industrial manufacturing – in short, anything that includes human and computer interaction. With such extensive inclusions, the AR & VR market is forecasted to see a robust ascent in the next five years, in terms of adoption and diversification across various verticals.
The Indian market for AR and VR is still in development, but its rising demand has led to the advent of technology aggregators to devise creative solutions.
