How is VR and AR changing Miami?

Back to Hub

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are two trends that have taken the globe by storm. Both technologies have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the world around us, and their ability to create immersive experiences for all industries is one reason why businesses are looking to AR and VR when enhancing their tech offerings.

For those who are new to the world of AR and VR, let's give a brief introduction to what these are. Both are computer-generated; however, AR overlays digital information onto the real world, while VR creates a completely immersive virtual world that users can interact with. 

AR and VR are both in their early stages of development; however, their potential is endless.

One city that's no stranger to these trends is Miami. From gaming to healthcare to education, Miami is quickly becoming a hub for AR and VR.

But why?

Firstly, Miami has always been on top of the latest tech trends. Take cryptocurrencies, for example; the city was one of the first to embrace this tech and is one of the reasons it gained a reputation as a technological innovation hub. Many businesses and organizations in Miami have begun to adopt AR and VR, from healthcare institutions looking to improve their training practices to educational facilities integrating VR into classrooms. Miami has been a hotbed for AR and VR technology.

Companies leveraging the power of AR and VR to create engaging experiences for consumers are attracting audiences in masses. This is particularly useful for businesses that want to simulate specific scenarios or environments they may not normally have access to, as well as enabling them to attract consumers who may not be able to physically attend spaces. The potential reach is endless. 

Additionally, these tech trends have proven to be cost-effective, making them attractive for businesses looking to increase efficiency and reduce costs. AR and VR have both been used to create immersive training environments for employees to learn new skills quickly. Sales teams also benefit massively from AR and VR, as businesses can demonstrate products and services in a realistic way, helping them sell an experience or design in a more tangible way not previously experienced.

So, who in Miami is using AR and VR?

Magic Leap: An AR platform that allows users to interact with digital information in the real world. The headsets project digital images onto the user's field of view.

Owl Labs: A company that makes 360° video conferencing devices, allowing everyone in the room to be seen and heard equally via the 360° camera, microphone, and speaker.

Sandbox: Offers futuristic VR experiences for groups of up to six people who can freely roam VR spaces together, exploring virtual worlds and relying on each other to succeed in games specifically designed as social experiences.

No matter what industry you're in, it's clear that AR and VR will continue to be a major part of the Miami tech landscape. So, if your business is looking for more ways to stay ahead of the curve, then AR and VR are definitely worth considering. With their vast potential, these technologies could be just the thing to help take your company to new heights. Users are experiencing a more interactive and immersive experience than traditional technologies can offer. 

When you think that this is just the start, it's an exciting technology to watch.
