Augmented Reality
Are you old enough to remember Pong by Atari? Using 2D graphics almost 30 years ago, Pong was one of the first video games to be launched, and it became an instant hit among teenagers. Today, we have augmented reality. Augmented reality is technology that uses graphics and integrates them into real world environments. It’s a beautiful blend of digital and real images that plays harmoniously with the senses. Another way of describing it is “enhanced reality.”

By using real time enhancement with digital images that are refreshed regularly, augmented reality is changing the way we work, play, and live. It is expected to eventually get to the point where every individual’s perspective is taken into consideration with augmented reality systems. This means that what you see may not necessarily be the same as what the person next to you sees.

The Applications of Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is already in play with magazines where you can scan an article and get videos and more to appear on your phone. The military also uses augmented reality head devices to give soldiers digital blueprints, satellite images, or a better vision of what is up ahead.

In business, there are countless ways that you can use augmented reality. You could digitally decorate your house before buying any furniture, or sign up for a makeover to see how a new hairstyle would look on you before going to the salon. You could even buy artwork and decide if it goes with the rest of the interior before making a huge investment.

How to Use Augmented Reality

First, it’s important to understand that augmented reality is the future and has already started to impact lives and businesses. Those businesses that offer augmented reality are making more money because they offer an experience that is still unique to much of the world. The sooner you jump on board, the sooner you too can profit from this technology.

Second, before you turn to experts to help you implement augment reality applications, make sure you have the foundation. Your website and other online business profiles must be geared for multiple screens. This maximizes the investment you will make, because your products can be easily viewed from any screen size.

Third, establish your goals, customer needs, and marketing strategy. This isn’t just new technology you and your customers can have fun with–the ultimate goal is business profits, higher ranking, and popularity.

Fourth, find the right partner to set up the technology for you. This investment should be quality-oriented so your customers enjoy the experience and select you to be their supplier. It helps build loyalty and increases your market share because of the unique experience you will be providing.

Finally, go over the final product and make sure that it achieves the objectives and goals you established before you began working with augmented reality. Then, savor the new website and online business profile you are presenting to the rest of the world. Welcome to the future!
