Augmented & Virtual Reality to be the next big things

Today's production processes involve recording ever higher volumes of machine and process data. But how can we sift out the useful content from these mountains of data?

18 Mar. 2016

The Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) exhibit at CeBIT 2016 demonstrated how smart data analytics with an augmented reality application can be displayed on the floor – the target and actual values of a production machine, for example. As another premiere at this year's CeBIT, Brother introduced its new data goggles, designed primarily for use in logistics and clinical environments.

A special eye-catcher at CeBIT involved the guest appearance by Tristan, the virtual dinosaur from the Berlin Museum of Natural History, courtesy of a Smartphone app by Shoutr. This stunningly true-to-life animation was screened over the real environment of the trade fair hall.
