Augmented Reality and the Future of the Work Environment

In addition to increasing personal productivity, AR also has the ability to enhance the productiveness of teams by supporting remote collaboration. Now more than ever, there is a growing demand for creating an effective remote workplace. Spatial is one tool that leverages AR to allow people to work together virtually and seamlessly. Put on a set of AR goggles to see your virtual workspace. You can hold meetings with coworkers who appear as digital avatars of themselves in your environment, without any travel required. You can write, share, and manipulate virtual sticky notes with your hands for brainstorming sessions with teammates. The information you share through Spatial is dynamic and not limited by the size of your computer screen or your physical proximity to your colleagues. Applications like Spatial highlight the ways in which AR can be used to bring people and ideas together digitally, thereby creating a more connected work environment.

Finally, AR is being applied in industrial settings and changing the way we train workers, ensure high quality output, and enhance workers’ safety. BMW’s production group, for example, employs AR-based applications in order to virtually train their employees in areas such as engine assembly and lean processes, with trainees viewing digital visuals and instructions through AR goggles for step-by-step instruction. Along these lines, AR can also be used to help with quality control by equipping inspectors with wearable glasses that show assistive information during inspections. AGCO, an agricultural equipment manufacturer, uses such glasses when manufacturing glass to replace computers and tablets, which are not easily accessible or are hard to manage during the time of inspection. Lastly, in other applications, AR combined with geographic information system (GIS) technology can improve safety by making it possible for industrial workers to virtually see what is beneath their work surface, whether it be pipes, cables, or other utilities they need to avoid.

AR is making our workplaces smarter, more productive, and safer. Helping to further these advancements and make AR even more accessible, echoAR is a 3D-ready cloud platform for AR and virtual reality (VR) that provides tools and server-side infrastructure to help developers and companies quickly build and deploy AR/VR apps and experiences. The echoAR platform allows you to build your backend in minutes, easily manage 3D content, and deliver that content anywhere.

VR Escape Room Specialist ARVI Partners With HTC Vive to Expand Global Deployment

Avatar

In the last couple of months, there’s been a concentrated effort to restart the virtual reality (VR) side of the location-based entertainment (LBE) industry. The latest comes from HTC Vive and ARVI VR, who have partnered up in an effort to bring the latter’s escape room experiences to a wider audience.

ARVI Mission Sigma

The collaboration will see the pair introduce VR escape rooms like Sanctum, Christmas, Mission Sigma and Cyberpunk to locations in China, India and Taiwan to begin with. Those locations will then be followed by Egypt, Hong-Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, Vietnam, and Kuwait at a later date.

Over the next three years, hundreds of VR arcade locations will receive ARVI VR’s content which is already used in HTC’s flagship VR park, Viveland. Kevin Williams, who covers LBE for VRFocus in The Virtual Arena has also learnt: “ARVI VR content currently targets the HTC Vive Pro platform and is expected to be converted to work on the successor hardware (the HTC Vive Cosmos).”

“Since 2019, HTC Vive has worked closely with ARVI VR to implement their popular escape room content for our customers at Viveland,” said Plutarch Lee, Associate Vice President, VR Enterprise Solutions at HTC Vive in a statement. “We’re excited to leverage their escape room content in even more arcades globally and look forward to adding more great multiplayer content later this year.”

ARVI Jungle Quest

“We’re thrilled to work with HTC Vive to bring our exciting and adventurous content to new audiences around the world,” said Michael Dementii, CEO of ARVI VR. “At present, we view this as a long-term and fruitful partnership with the possibility of broadening cooperation opportunities in the LBE industry.”

ARVI VR has been creating VR escape room games since 2016, partnering with numerous companies and deploying its tech across 250+ locations worldwide. Its latest title is Chernobyl which launches this month, where up to six players travel back in time to that fateful day.

As the LBE industry gets back on its feet and more content is announced, VRFocus will keep you updated.
