YOU ARE AT:Internet of Things (IoT)Becoming a 'super' with augmented reality

Becoming a ‘super’ with augmented reality

Now being a “super” (like in the movie “The Incredibles”) is actually possible, and you don’t even have to squeeze yourself into spandex, according to Ori Inbar, the co-founder and CEO of AugmentedReality.org

Augmented Reality technologies are bringing real-world enhancements to our physiological and mental capabilities. Imagine volumes of books immediately accessible for scanning, EEG devices that help you interact with just a thought, and voice and gesture technology that enable multitasking while offering freedom of movement. Basically, AR is a form of superpower for us, according to Inbar. AugmentedReality.org (www.augmentedreality.org) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing AR and the producer of the Augmented Reality Expo.

Ori envisions 1B AR devices in the hands of users by 2020, and in his interview with the U2U Connect show, Ori describes:

  • His vision for Wearables in the near future and this upcoming AWE 2015 conference.
  • How various industries currently use AR such as manufacturing, utilities and other support services, and healthcare.
  • The impact Google glass has had on interactive smart eyewear with currently 15 versions being available in the market right now. One such example is glasses that offer X-ray vision so doctors and nurses can see through physical tissue immediately while working with patients.
  • How IoT and AR will combine.
  • The range between AR and VR gaming and how alternative games also will be impacted.
  • The role of telecom in AR.
  • He names companies to keep an eye on in the AR ecosystem including chip, projection, eyewear and other wearables companies also playing in this space.
  • What he sees as key issues that need to be addressed in order to have this industry sector truly take off.
