How Businesses Today Are Implementing Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is one of the most exciting technologies that made its way into the mass market in recent years. What can it do for your business?   Unlike virtual reality that creates a fully virtual environment around a user, augmented reality integrates virtual objects into existing surroundings.

How 5G Will Impact Augmented Reality

5G could be the key to unlocking Augmented Reality's potential. We all know by now that 5G is going to be a big deal. The next generation mobile network will provide ubiquitous gigabit connection speeds, extremely low latency and unrestricted capacity.

Augmented Reality Affect Our Behaviour in the Real World

As major technology firms race to roll out augmented reality products, Stanford researchers are learning how it affects people's behaviour – in both the physical world and a digitally enhanced one.   A new study from Stanford's School of Humanities and Sciences has found that augmented reality (AR) experiences significantly affect people's behaviour in the real world, even after they've taken the headset off. Using 218 participants and a pair of AR goggles, researchers led by Professor Jeremy Bailenson conducted three experiments.   The first showed a [...]

Nike Unveils New Customer-Driven Augmented Reality App

Years of experimenting with augmented reality has paid off for footwear maker Nike Inc. with the company’s release of Nike Fit, an AR app that helps customers make sure they get properly sized shoes.   Many shoppers have gone online and ordered multiple pairs of the same style shoe, in different sizes, planning to send back what doesn’t fit. The reasons are simple. Consumers often find they fit into different sizes — maybe a 7.5 women’s here, an 8.5 women’s there — depending [...]

Two years later, in collaboration with the award-winning studios Strange Flavour and secondverse, [...]

Whether on social channels or across the web, we all know how to ignore boring ads and pay attention to the content that is interesting [...]
