Will Immersive Technologies Change Your Workplace?

Do you know that Travis Scott held a virtual reality concert using immersive technologies? Almost 12.3 million Fortnite viewers attended the show. Millions could watch it later on YouTube. The pandemic fast-tracked AR, MR, and XR developments, which seemed like a decade-long initiative earlier. These technologies might soon be a part of your daily workspace.

Though it might take more time to regularly use augmented reality (AR), VR, mixed reality (MR), and extended reality (XR) at work, it might as well be the start. With the advent of 5G and integration with AI, these immersive technologies will shortly be part of your workplace:

Adopting MR

Microsoft and HBR Analytic Services conducted a study across multiple industries to understand the effect of MR. 68 percent of respondents think that technology can help achieve company goals. As a matter of fact, 90 percent of the participants were exploring MR. Improved customer experience and services, workflow efficiency, competitive edge, and cost reduction are the main drivers for the adoption.

Reinventing the Workplace

Work from home might have saved several lives, but it has strained work relationships. So, with immersive technologies, you can make the team feel more engaged. Events, training sessions, and team meetings will be more realistic than before. According to Walmart U.S. Academic senior director Andy Trainor, “VR training boosts confidence and retention while improving test scores 10 to 15 percent.”
