The Future of Augmented and Virtual Reality

ar-vr-future The Future of Augmented and Virtual RealityReading Time: 2 minutes

 

While augmented reality (AR), and its counterpart virtual reality (VR), are still heavily associated with gaming, they’re both rapidly growing fields with a much wider range of applications. Augmented reality alone is expected to be a market of more than $60 billion by 2023, and part of this growth will be from expansion into new industries. With a renewed focus on developing iOS apps and Android apps for these technologies, customers will be able to access a whole new reality.

There are many important obstacles these technologies will have to deal with as they come to play a greater role in our lives, but the next few years are bright for both AR and VR. They each offer unique opportunities and promise to change the way business is done in a variety of settings.

 

AR in Marketing

Although VR has an important role to play, augmented reality remains more accessible to consumers for a variety of reasons. In contrast to virtual reality, AR software can be downloaded and used directly on devices like smartphones and computers—one example of this is Pokemon GO, which continues to bring in $2 million daily in player spending.

Augmented reality technology would allow companies to create virtual business cards or provide information in real-time based on a user’s location. It can even simulate the appearance of certain goods, allowing potential customers to visualize an item before purchasing it. This also helps to bring the online shopping experience closer to that of a traditional brick and mortar store.

 

Improving Manufacturing Efficiency

In addition to its applications for end users, AR can also be utilized within manufacturing industries to improve processes in a number of ways. This is vital in a field that places such a high emphasis on speed, reliability, and efficiency to realize the greatest possible profits.

Providing instructions and other documentation in AR form allows employees to focus on their work without dealing with the inconvenience and distraction of physical copies (not to mention the environmental impact). Paper accounts for 50% of all business waste, so replacing it with digital text is preferable whenever possible.

 

Applications in Healthcare

Some of the same principles underlying the implementation of augmented reality in manufacturing also contribute to its possibilities in the world of medicine. Surgeons, as an example, can use AR to visualize CT scan results overlaid on the actual patient during an operation, giving them the ability to see both at once.

This also opens up the opportunity for specialists to lead surgery remotely by assisting an onsite doctor through the operation, removing location-based limitations to healthcare access. These applications and others have the potential to improve quality of care while making operations quicker and more efficient.

It’s impossible to imagine all the ways in which augmented reality will affect our lives in the near future and beyond, but the technology is already being used in numerous exciting ways and modifying traditional business practices. Its range of implementations will likely continue to grow as it becomes more affordable and consumers become more accustomed to its presence in everyday life.

Evolution Gaming Launches Super Sic Bo, An Exciting Take On The Classic Dice Game

super-sic-bo Evolution Gaming Launches Super Sic Bo, An Exciting Take On The Classic Dice GameReading Time: 1 minute

 

Evolution Gaming, leading provider of Live Casino solutions, has launched its all-new live dealer Super Sic Bo. Available on desktop, tablet and smartphone, Evolution’s Live Super Sic Bo is a modern, user-friendly take on the ancient dice game that extends the game by adding exciting random multipliers that can increase winnings by up to 1000x.

Just like traditional Sic Bo, Evolution Live Super Sic Bo is played by predicting the outcome of the roll of three standard dice. Players place their bets on one or more of the many result combinations shown on the game’s betting table. What makes the Evolution game significantly different from standard Sic Bo is that random multipliers are applied to between zero and several bet spots just before the dice are rolled in the Evolution game’s custom dice shaker. If the player’s bet is placed on a bet spot with a highlighted multiplier, the payout is multiplied accordingly.

Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer at Evolution, said: “Sic Bo has not changed in the last 100 years but we have done something players will love to this classic game — added random multipliers of up to 1000x! This is the most player-friendly Sic Bo game in the world, and we think players will love it.”

Haushalter added: “This is totally authentic Sic Bo, but with massive added excitement. It’s simple to play for new players, yet totally satisfying for Sic Bo devotees. The super-engaging User Interface and high payout RNG element in particular will appeal to the widest range of players, including slots players.”

Live Super Sic Bo streams live from Evolution’s primary central studios in Riga and is available now to all Evolution licensees.
