You can create your own reality by augmenting your surroundings through a specialized set of glasses or your phone camera.
Virtual and Augmented reality have helped shape how people engage in communication and entertainment, and promise to deliver even more influence over a number of fields.
A project by Spar 3D that features AR dancing has opened up the possibility for augmented reality in a number of unconventional fields. Here are some potential uses of AR that you probably may not have considered.
AR for charity
There are a lot of people around the world who could use some help. The disparity in income, food security, health markers and other determinants are addressed around the world through the use of charity and goodwill.
However, it is not always possible to relay the experiences of people who need help. The use of AR, which allows the development of content that delivers shared experiences, will enable people to feel these problems on a more personal level and increase the chances that they are addressed.
AR for real estate
The internet changed the way people engaged with the real estate industry. Potential buyers do not have to visit your listed sale to be able to determine whether it suits the bill.
They can simply find your property online and determine whether it is interesting enough for them. If they do consider it viable, they may then make an on-site visit.
AR can take real estate even further by allowing agencies to provide the property experience for each unit. Users can inspect their potential purchases on in an even more detailed way with AR, allowing them to know whether it suits their needs without having to visit the property.
It could enable a more globally minded real estate industry as well.
AR for health
AR is an immersive technology that could prove useful for health, particularly in the provision of psychiatric care. Mood conditions, such as anxiety, could benefit from the potential use of a virtual environment which can safely project trigger stimuli and help in addressing it.
AR has already shown immense potential in its use for PTSD. Aside from these, AR can also be used to simulate difficult conditions for training physicians to help prepare them for the real world and reduce their propensity to make mistakes.
Through the use of AR, physicians can help improve the quality of services provided, which will see a boost to healthcare.
