At the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival, IEEE presented the “Omnipresent: When Virtual Meets Reality” panel where industry experts discussed Virtual and Augmented Reality.
When the “virtual overlay” meets everyday life, everything changes, from the way we shop to the way we interact with the world around us. Today, augmented reality is moving beyond the virtual dimension to enhance real world experiences, meshing with and revolutionizing interactive training, real-world simulation, design, architecture, manufacturing, medicine and more. This panel explores new advancements in Virtual / Augmented Reality and the short and long-term impacts AR may carry. They also explore the not-so-distant future, highlighting the creative opportunities that exist for the development of new AR solutions, standards and enabling technologies.
