Laboratories with Augmented Information
Augmented Reality is an important emerging technology that is starting to break into many major industries and sectors. Leading technology companies have been heavily investing in development of both hardware and software platforms that enable and unleash the great potential of AR.
The Hardware race to develop the most widely adopted head mounted display (HMD) is led by Microsoft Hololens, Magic Leap and Meta. Software, especially mobile based platforms, is widely available using software development kits (SDKs) like Unity, Apple’s ARKit and Google’s ARCore.
There have been promising early adoption and traction in industries such as logistics, engineering, manufacturing, product design, and consumer home improvement and furnishing.
The global laboratory industry has a market size of hundreds of billions of dollars annually. Laboratories are present in many important and fundamental economic sectors, including government research, education, health care, manufacturing, and technologies. Today, laboratories are achieving their scientific education and research goals in new ways by applying fast growing modern technologies.
One of those opportunities is the movement of laboratory digitization.
