AVR

Cutting Edge Tech Since 1838

New AR apps, advances in VR headsets, web-based AR in the next year – no wonder AVR is the hot new technology that brands and organisations are now leaping into.

For such a revolutionary new technology, the concept of AVR surprisingly started in 1838 when Charles Wheatstone presented his stereoscope to the world. Based on optical illusion science, the stereoscope transported the viewer to wondrous new worlds.

Over the next few decades, further developments included the Kinetoscope (1891), View-Master (1938) and Nintendo Virtual Boy (1995). Technology has caught up with imagination, and today’s AVR headsets range from Google Cardboard through to Oculus Rift and Microsoft HoloLens.

These advancements have made AVR more accessible and exciting than ever.

What is AVR?

Google’s VP of Augmented and Virtual Reality, Clay Bavor, describes it like this, “VR can put you anywhere, and AR can bring anything to you.” AVR technology brings computer-generated imagery to life, and merges it into your real world. He goes on to describe these technologies as being different points on a spectrum.

Google calls this spectrum ‘immersive computing.’ Microsoft calls the same spectrum ‘mixed reality.’

We don’t want to get into this fight, so we’ve been calling it AVR (Augmented and Virtual Reality).

AR is when we bring objects and information to you to supplement your world. If you were visiting Pompeii, AR could overlay pictures and information about the volcanic eruption in 79 AD onto your digital screen.

Here, VR replaces your world. Imagine putting on a VR headset and being able to experience Pompeii’s volcanic eruption in a lifelike virtual world.

Taking it a step further than AR, MR allows you to interact with the image and text objects overlaying your world as if they were really there.

What’s trending in AVR technology?

New advances in hardware and platforms from around the world.

An Accuteque AVR Workshop can help you spark ideas.

AR, VR, MR – which approach is right for your organisation?

Basically, it comes down to what you want it to achieve. Do you want to wow your audience? Would you like to test new products virtually before production? Can you use AVR to increase staff training within the same L&D budget?

What you need is to get your team into the right environment. We run specialty workshops to educate organisations on the potential of AVR and inspire solutions for how best to harness this exciting new technology.

Accuteque AVR Workshop

This day-long workshop is more than just an introduction to the digital realities available to you. During the session, you and your team will:

  1. Identify – Find problems that you want to solve and set up measures to apply to the outcome.
  2. Inspire – Working in teams, you will brainstorm different solutions.
  3. Ideate – Experiment using collective hands-on prototyping.
  4. Implement – Use Accuteque’s knowledge of cross disciplinary stakeholders to create a fit-for-purpose solution.
  5. Impress – Build a business case to pitch to your leadership team.
Call us to find out more about what your organisation can get out of an Accuteque AVR Workshop.

Your own prototype

At the end of the workshop, Accuteque will design a working prototype of one of your workshopped solutions to use as part of your business case. A prototype gives your business something tangible to test. These tests will tell you what needs refining before you take the next step in making your idea a reality.

Want to know more about the prototype? Get in touch with us today.
