A recent article on CIO Review.com discusses what you need to know about AR and VR in manufacturing. VR and AR are ready for commercialisation and some of the most promising applications are in industrial manufacturing and design.
Perhaps the most promising XR technology applications are found in manufacturing and industrial environments. Indeed according to PwC research, the use of VR MR and AR in product development could raise GDP by $360 billion by 2030.
