Online shopping

One obstacle to online shopping is that products are not always correctly represented, oftentimes due to poor photo availability. With augmented reality, it is possible to visualize an object in its "true" form before actually making a purchase. Alternatively, in situations where users may find themselves without the proper assistance or information in real time, augmented reality adds value to the procurement process. On a commercial site, it can create interactions that would not have existed between a customer and a vendor.


Augmented reality (AR) refers to the digitally enhanced perception of the outside worlds, things, and phenomena. Now, it has evolved as one of the widely adopted technologies across the sectors, most notably education and learning. Students while learning a phenomenon or when knowing about a particular thing just can interact with a 3D image, get involved with forms, objects, and environments in a digital interface much in the same way they interact with the world outside. For example, while reading a text, a 3D video content can be shown in their handheld device depicting the way class teacher explained certain solutions to a problem. Well, there are too many AR apps and tools that changed the learning and training in many ways.


For patients, Augmented Reality can significantly improve the quality of treatment they receive from their healthcare provider. For starters, the risks associated with minimally invasive surgery (which involves making a small incision in the patient's skin and inserting medical instruments) can be reduced by keeping the most important information front and center for the surgeon. Where previously this type of surgery required monitors in the operating room to display vital statistics and images being delivered by an endoscopic camera, thanks to AR a surgeon can now wear smart glasses during the procedure and stay focused on the task at hand, therefore minimizing mistakes and reducing the need to multitask more than is perhaps necessary.
