Recent AR/VR Case Studies
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are emerging technologies that are revolutionizing the way we interact with digital content. Both AR and VR require custom software development and specific hardware requirements to create immersive and interactive experiences for users.
Find links below to a sample of software development with AR/VR case studies. We help companies use VR, AR, and 3D web applications through custom project development from concept to final product. We specialize in applications for virtual training, guided tours, education, virtual walkthroughs and events, digital twins, machine replacement, trade shows, and marketing. See case studies, in the below areas plus much more.
Hardware Requirements for AR and VR
AR devices allow users to view digital elements in the real world. These virtual portals range from mobile smart phones and tablets to more tailored hardware like Meta Quest virtual reality (VR) headsets, Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality (MR), or Magic Leap augmented reality (AR) glasses. Hardware with certain development techniques can track the user’s head/ hand movements and display virtual objects seamlessly within the user’s field of view.
VR requires a VR headset so users can experience a fully immersive environment. Hardware, range from low to high cost with hardware such as the Meta Quest, HTC Vive, Valve Index, or PlayStation VR. Pro versions of these headsets usually have better cameras and features but come with a steeper price tag. The VR headset tracks the user’s head movements, allowing them to look around and explore the virtual world. In addition to the headset, users often need appropriate controllers or input devices to interact with the virtual environment, such as handheld controllers or motion-tracking devices. Higher end models sometimes allow for hand gestures (no hardware) as inputs, but these are sometimes less stable.
These hardware devices work together to track the user’s movements, display the virtual content, and enable interactions within the virtual environment. The advancements in hardware technology have made AR and VR more accessible and affordable, bringing these immersive experiences to a wider audience.
AR/VR Case Studies for Software Development
While hardware is essential in project development, software development (or 3D development) is what makes your application work. Software plays a crucial role in the deployment of AR and VR applications. Innovations in development have enabled us to showcase AR/VR case studies that have more realistic graphics, improved tracking, and enhanced user experiences.
Developers create AR and VR applications using specialized software development kits (SDKs) that provide tools and libraries for building immersive experiences. These SDKs enable our developers to incorporate gesture recognition, spatial mapping, and other advanced features into our applications. For AR, developers can leverage ARCore for Android or ARKit for iOS, which provide the necessary tools to create augmented reality experiences on mobile devices. For virtual reality, developers can use platforms like Unity or Unreal Engine, which offer powerful rendering capabilities and support for various VR headsets.
Furthermore, advancements in computer vision algorithms and machine learning have contributed to the improvement of AR and VR tracking. These algorithms enable accurate tracking of the user’s movements, allowing virtual objects to be precisely placed and interacted with in the real world or virtual environment. Real-time rendering techniques have also evolved, enabling more realistic graphics and reducing latency, which is crucial for a seamless applications and increased adoption capability.
