Through the means of this article, you will learn the applications of AR in various domains. Moreover, we will talk about its benefits and future of this industry.
Lets deep dive in the topic.
Before bouncing off the article, do check out the video at the end.
Applications of Augmented Reality | Shocking Benefits of AR
Hey guys, the AR industry is present since the 1980s. Since then a lot of advancements had taken place in this industry.
For your information, in its initial stages, it was used in Head-Up Display technology for pilots.
But, as the IT industry flourished, the demand for augmented technology increased. More and more domains started employing this technology.
Most of you guys might be familiar with “Pokemon Go“. Right? This game also this technology.
Also, our favorite Snapchat filters are also based on AR technology. Seems pretty interesting. Right? It is very interesting.
AR basically alters our perception of the real world by adding digital elements to the environment.
Personally speaking, this technology amazes me a lot. It has numerous applications in the field of education, medicine, etc.
Let’s talk about the applications of augmented reality in little detail.
MUST READ: What is Virtual Reality?
As we all know, many schools are shifting from bookish education to digital education. To fulfill this criterion, schools have shifted to tablet-based education.
Augmented reality creates an interactive environment for the students which they can view via a smartphone, or on their tablet.
It provides deep insights into very complex concepts. Hence, students are able to grasp complex terms and modeling very easily.
For example, students can see the full working of an animal or a plant cell through AR, which they might not be able to see with the old form of practical education.
Most of you will be delighted to know that we can explore the outer space concepts in much great detail. That’s what most of us like to do. What are your views on this? Do let me know via social media.
Do let me know if you have some great ideas.
This is what most of us like. Right? The entertainment industry has been using AR as a primary source of the graphical interface.
Most of us like to watch movies about which we had read before. There might be a case where people don’t think much about it. But it is the case with most of us.
You will be delighted to know, that movies like Avengers and Harry Potter made extensive use of AR. Moreover, these movies became a huge success because people love to read about them as well.
To your surprise, games like Pokemon Go also uses AR technology as its primary tool.
We all love to click photos. Moreover, the portrait is the favorite of all. Right? The portrait mode also uses this technology.
Which is your favorite mode for the photoshoot? Do let us know.
Also, our favorite Snapchat filters also use the same technology. Now, this seems to be interesting right?
With the old form of practical education, it was very difficult to take up surgery training. It is very tough in today’s scenario as well.
Due to life risk, the patient won’t allow a training doctor for his/her treatment. We all love our life so we can’t blame the patient for this.
To cope up with this, AR technology provided the platform for deep insights and learning of complex surgeries without the involvement of any live patient.
As you can see guys, this seems to be a revolutionary step and clearly, it is.
Students can learn deep anatomy concepts with an interactive 3D tool. No risk just learning.
You can wonder why this was important? Because medical students don’t have any fear to risk others life. Now that is something we all were looking for.
Modeling and Design:
Before the existence of AR, it was very difficult to visualize the final product of any proposed design. Many architectures, engineers had to work a lot to come up with a perfect model.
Due to this reason, it took a hell lot of time to avoid any failure in the future.
But when AR stepped into this industry, architectures, engineers, and designers made full use of it.
AR has helped the designers to save their time and think on multiple projects likewise. Layouts of cities, buildings, bridges, etc. can be experienced on the spot.
You will be delighted to know that we can now make even small to small changes on the spot in the model.

Now let us move to the next use of it.
Now, you all might be thinking that how AR can be used in logistics. Right? Here’s a simple answer to your question.
AR helps many logistic companies to increase their efficiency and customer services. After all, customer satisfaction is important for all companies to remain in the market.
You will be surprised to know that, companies like DHL has started using AR smart glasses. This helps their logistic partner to find shortest routes.
This probably increases efficiency and saves a lot of time.
According to you guys, what more can this technology provide? Safety, Yes. Let me answer this point.
As you guys already know, natural as well as man-made disasters can’t be controlled once initiated.
But we can ensure our safety before any mishappening takes place. AR has a very promising future in this domain.
You will be delighted to know that, people wearing AR gadgets will be informed about the natural mishappening. Therefore, they will be alerted about danger areas.
People would be able to find the safest locations as soon as possible. Moreover, people would be able to access real-time assistance at any moment.

Maintenance and Repair:
As by now, you guys learned the applications of augmented reality in design and modeling. But, where else we can employ it? Let me answer this question.
One of the biggest industrial use of AR is basically done for repair and maintenance.
Most of the companies are employing the use of AR headsets and glasses for troubleshooting the problems.
Now, you guys might be thinking that how it is possible? Yet, the AR helps the worker to find and identify the problem.
Moreover, it suggests the worker with some useful information and provides a solution with some potential fixes.
You will be delighted to know that in the future, AR and IoT might go hand in hand which will provide information feeds directly to AR gadgets.
As you guys might be aware of some of the retail companies that use AR for customer satisfaction. But how? Let me clear this.
Most of the companies including Harley Davidson, Porsche, and Aston Martin are making full use of it.
These companies have developed an AR-based app which basically provides deep insights into the product. Moreover, this app helps to customize the product according to the need of the customer.
Now, this has provided us with a lot of choices to choose from without spending any extra money. This is really amazing at their part.
Let us now talk about tourism.
To explain this part, let us create a discussion plot. How would you feel if you don’t receive an experience as promised by your travel partner?
Obviously, we will feel sad or angry most of the times. Also, we would start cursing the travel partner.
Moreover, we always relied over user reviews on various other websites. Most of the times it doesn’t match our experience.
But, you will be surprised to know that, many traveling websites are adopting AR technology for their customer satisfaction.
You would be able to get a virtual “Walkabout” using your AR gadgets before even traveling to your destination.
This seems to be really interesting. I was really amazed after knowing all this.
What are your views on it? Do let me know.
These were all the basic applications of augmented reality on which the research is going on. Moreover, many of these applications are already in use.
As you can see, this technology is very promising and enables us to explore the universe way beyond our expectation.
Soon it will become accessible to most of us.
As more and more advanced technology would enter the market you will be notified via our website.
