Founded in 2011, Road to VR is the world’s leading independent news publication dedicated to the consumer virtual reality industry. We explore the bleeding edge of virtual reality, augmented reality, and human-computer interaction. We’re charting the course between today’s immersive technology and that of the distant future, capable of perfect simulations of reality.
In a quote for Oanalitica Chris Madsen, the social VR liaison on behalf of Road to VR outlined the road ahead of us:
“Augmented Reality devices access, manipulate and present data in real time within the environment of the user. AR is becoming more powerful as evolving technology allows us to capture more environmental data than ever before. AR applications utilizing this data allow interactions relative to our physical space effectively giving us superpowers such as the ability to look through walls, identify unknown objects, read foreign languages and even get step by step visual assistance with problems all in real time.
As a tool for personal enhancement the possibilities are staggering. The most exciting thing to me is how artificial intelligence is converging with AR. Fully interactive AI assistants, teachers, doctors, guides, instructors, entertainers, companions and more will eventually be just a command away. What they will they look like and how they will function is a work in progress. At Morph 3D we are implementing dynamic, customizable avatars to provide AI’s, users and in-app characters a way to be represented in our multiple realities. We are living in the future, folks. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!”
