Support and immersive technologies open up enormous potentials in the work setting: conferences in social VR save travel costs and hectic schedules for the employees of international companies. Even product development and market research will be done in VR in future. Shopper journeys will be displayed virtually and come to replace physical test markets. In an industrial context, augmented and mixed reality will support maintenance and assembly teams.
Augmented reality can replace X-ray images for operations and thereby reduce radiation exposure for patients. Seamless access to the right knowledge at the right place makes the virtual workplace of the future so valuable.
