Mega-trend Virtualisation

High-performance and versatile input devices, multisensory enhancements and the growing number of cheap, accurate sensors are opening up new possibilities in the virtual world. The demand for and development of technologies is increasing due to the digitisation of analog activities and their remote implementation.

Advantage virtual collaboration

Covid-19 has brought about a wave of development in virtual platforms and digital tools that facilitate virtual collaboration and support flexible, agile ways of working. In industry, thanks to advanced sensors, complex simulations are possible with digital twin technology, and these simulations are also being used in environmental protection and in the health sector.

Virtualisation and personalisation

Augmented, mixed and virtual reality are bringing about a fusion of the digital and analog in everyday life. This involves a high degree of personalisation, enables us to interact virtually with people and content, and provides memorable experiences. The multisensory enhancement of virtual content, such as with olfactory or haptic elements, is giving rise to a whole new level of immersion that can be used for virtual training, in the health sector and in the gaming industry.
