Augmented Reality
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:47:12 pm »
Has anyone successfully implemented augmented reality (AR) on a project? It seems virtual reality (VR) has been used quite a bit and integrated quite well into a BIM workflow. Personally I see AR having a larger impact due to its social nature (multiple people in the same room looking at the same thing) and the fact that it is more portable (can still see where you're going). I've seen plenty of testing, but has anyone used it on a project? What was the experience like?

I haven't done it but one of the leaders in this area is in Northern Europe - Finland. The state research agency VTT has had a program on this stuff for well over a decade and they have done many different applications and demos and have some partnerships with industry there.

I believe there is a huge opportunity in Health Care for AR. I am currently getting approval to be on a committee for the VRARA that looks at AR in Health Care. There are a lot of applications yet to be discovered, I would love to bring this into the world of Architecture.

Thank you for introducing me to VTT, they have developed some pretty useful tools!
