AR & VR in the latest iBi

In this month’s issue of iBi, we focus on the world of high technology… where augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are transforming a range of industries.

“The hardware (head-mounted displays, or HMDs) needed to view VR is coming down in price, making it accessible to more users, while the widespread availability of smartphones places the possibility of AR at anyone’s fingertips,” writes Annette Kiesewetter of CSE Software. “Altogether, this technology is a viable solution for training in a multitude of industries.”

Watch their team put the new technology to the test.
