If you’re following the AR technology boom, it may seem like you’re reading daily about a new corporation adopting AR in their business. Volvo has recently developed a Virtual Reality experience for consumers to feel as though they are walking around a dealership in real-time. They can view the new cars and even take a model for a 3D test drive from their homes.
The film industry also jumped on the AR bandwagon. Megahit Game of Thrones, for example, developed “Ascend the Wall,” an AR experience where the audience can view and interact with the show’s landscapes and terrain. Augmented and Virtual Reality has given way for new shopping experiences and emotional connection through a deeper level of storytelling.
All of this may sound amazing, exciting, and expensive. You may also be wondering how the Volvo and Game of Thrones technology applies to your business’ success.
In 2018 PR Newswire researched the way businesses are implementing AR and VR. They found that 82% of companies currently implementing these solutions say the benefits are meeting or exceeding expectations. Additionally, 50% of the executives who were not yet implementing AR and VR plan to do so within the next three years.
