Future of augmented reality

In the last few years, augmented reality (AR) has been growing from strength to strength. Nowadays, we can easily find applications for our phones and tablets that make use of this exciting technology. It’s not just entertainment anymore, in fact it’s starting to be used as a tool for industry and business.

In this blog post, we will look at what is coming in the next 10 years. We will see how AR is being integrated into our lives and how it will soon be possible to have full-body haptic feedback from AR devices so that we can actually feel things through them!

What is Haptics?

Haptics refers to the sense of touch. It is the term used to describe any technology that allows you to feel something in your hand or on your skin without having direct contact with an object itself (such as holding a phone). The idea behind haptics has been around for decades but only recently has it started becoming more mainstream thanks largely due in part due to developments made by Apple Inc. and Google LLC with their respective products such as Apple Watch or Google Glasses (both available now). These products provide users with tactile feedback from their environment through vibrations at specific frequencies depending on what they’re doing with their hands while wearing them

I’m not the only one making a bet on the future of augmented reality. Here are some other companies and people who have publicly announced their bets:

The future of augmented reality is going to be huge and will change the way we use technology forever. I’m making a bet that haptics is the next big thing in AR, but there are lots of other bets being made by companies like Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Snapchat… The future of AR is bright!

I’ve been doing a little bit of research into haptics and figured I’d post some of my thoughts. A lot of AR users will be wearing smart glasses in the future, but we won’t always be holding our phones. This means we can’t rely on phone vibrations as our only source of haptic feedback, so companies are going to have to get creative.

The first thing that comes to mind is bone conduction technology. Bone conduction works by passing vibrations through your skin rather than the air. Bone conduction is already being used in headphones today, so it seems like the logical choice for smart glasses. By passing the vibration through your skin instead of the air, you can still hear what’s going on around you while getting feedback from your glasses.

Another option is ultrasound which transmits sound waves at frequencies above 20 kHz (which is above the range of human hearing). Ultrasound could be used to create 3D shapes and textures in mid-air without using any type of screen or projection system. The user could then be able to feel these shapes and textures with their fingers just like they would with a physical object. For example, imagine feeling a virtual button on your desk that you can press

Augmented reality (AR) is the real-time use of information in the form of 3D models, text, graphics and sound overlaid in a live view often via mobile devices. Haptics is the science of applying touch (tactile) sensation and control to interaction with computer applications. Haptic technology has made it possible to investigate how the human sense of touch works by allowing the creation of carefully controlled haptic virtual objects.

Haptic technology is being used today as a means of interacting with augmented reality systems and it has changed the ways in which people interact with computers. It has also enhanced input and output capabilities for users involved with 3D modeling, simulations, engineering design, video games and virtual reality systems.

The main advantage of using augmented reality instead of a virtual environment is that it allows us to interface directly with our existing environment, while still maintaining an immersive experience. The main advantage of haptics is that it allows us to manipulate virtual objects as if they were real and solid.

This was one of the first projects that I did. It’s a UI for controlling your phone with a Leap Motion device. You can see the blog here: http://hapticsblog.com/

This website was created by me in my free time and it’s 100% functional.

The reason why humans are able to control complex tools like forklifts, cranes or excavators is because we have lots of experience interacting with the physical world. We can easily learn how to move and control these machines, because we have an intuition about what will happen when we do something in the physical world.

The same does not apply for VR. We can already see that people have a hard time controlling virtual objects. It is easy to see this if you try any of the Google Tilt Brush demos. The reason for this is that our brains are not trained to operate in a virtual world. We don’t know what will happen when we do something in VR, which makes it harder to learn how to use our hands inside VR.

In order for us to be able to control virtual objects effortlessly, we need haptic feedback in VR. The only way to develop our intuition about what will happen when we do something in VR, is by our body getting feedback in real-time when we perform actions inside VR. Otherwise our brain never learns how to operate inside VR.

Although virtual reality (VR) has been around for decades, we’re seeing a surge in interest in the technology as projected growth continues to increase. VR is estimated to be worth $33.9 billion by 2022, according to Statista.

But what about augmented reality (AR)? Although AR is a less heard of technology than VR, it’s projected growth is even higher. By 2024, the market size for AR will be worth $61.39 billion, according to Research and Markets.

The difference between augmented reality and virtual reality

So what makes these two technologies different? And how do they work together? We’ve broken down the basics:

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artificial environment that’s created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment. In other words, users are immersed into an interactive experience that’s generated with computer software rather than physical objects. VR requires the use of some form of display screen or headset and headphones to block out external sounds so that users can focus on the digital world in front of them.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) is similar to VR but instead of completely
