Immerse Reality in the Workplace

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment.

Augmented Reality (AR)  is the result of using technology to superimpose information — sounds, images, and text — in the world we see.

Mixed Reality (MR) combines elements of both real and virtual environments and creates a new world where physical and synthetic objects come together and interact. 

VR is likely to affect companies across the board as they adopt the technology to help them engage customers more effectively and optimize their sales and marketing efforts. It’s also a potentially useful tool for learning and is increasingly being adopted by educational organizations..

5 Technology Trends You Need to Know to Work in Any Industry

There are many ways in which the advances in technology aid and progress in our modern day world. Immersive reality allows for efficiency in the development of standardized procedures. The following are some examples of putting it to work.

  • Immersive reality makes interviewing more efficient. The initial processes of testing the waters, and probationary periods between employers and employees, can be reduced in costs by narrowing down candidates in the beginning.
  • Training becomes more than reading a handbook, it is part of the future, we’ve reached a point where training is possible on a virtual platform. The cost of risk changes from fatalities to fixable issues. For instance, augmented reality is particularly prominent in the medical field, allowing for the practice of new procedures without risking human life first.
  • Collaboration and telecommunication through immersive reality allow for a more real experience. Video conferencing calls, remote meetings are used to engage workers and manage projects. With a simulated environment, employees are able to put themselves in work mode without actually being there.

The adoption will be slow as the devices are still connected to high costs and it will take time to create personalized applications that fit the uniqueness of each business.

What is the potential of virtual reality in the workplace?

Ideas of the future and science fiction have come to life in the world we are part of now. Computer simulated reality is not just for games and entertainment, it’s being used to advance the scientific study, and expand our knowledge.
