Augmented reality is a growing field, and has received recent investments from big companies such as Google and Apple. The primary question remains whether augmented reality will change our lives, and by how much. Here is how augmented reality will transform our future.

1. Healthcare

Use of augmented reality in the healthcare industry has already helped saved lives. For instance, augmented reality offers surgeons in-depth knowledge on the risks of performing surgeries.

Augmented reality glasses help doctors and surgeons perform better. Initially, they would have required checking the online monitors to understand the condition of the patient. However, with the AR glasses, vital information regarding the patient appears in front of their eyes, enhancing their focus on what they are doing.

With augmented reality, what was previously a complex surgery will now be conducted with significant expertise.

2. Travel industry

One way through which augmented reality can transform the travel industry is through AR applications. If a tourist installs the AR application on their smartphone, they can use it to translate boards or signs into their language, or to locate tourist attractions near them.

Travelers can use augmented reality glasses as they explore and visit local attractions. AR technology will show 3D models which will help the tourist understand the evolution that occurred with time.

3. Real estate development

We would all like to live in modern and well-designed houses. However, sometimes the design we get is not what we wanted. Through interactive computer-generated images, AR enables buyers to imagine how their ongoing projects would look after completion.

This technology has a significant impact on the real estate industry because it helps transform any 2D model into 3D for potential buyers.

For real estate developers and builders, augmented reality makes it convenient for them to display their property. Furthermore, potential buyers can change the room size or color depending on how they want the house to look on completion.

4. Education

Augmented reality can revolutionize education. AR offers state-of-art technology that will provide students with content which will enable them to understand the concepts being taught.

Students can use augmented reality 3D models to understand complicated information in a natural way. Augmented reality focuses on exploration. The educational sector can take advantage of this and use it to enable students to learn and understand.

Educational sites such as museums and historical sites have incorporated AR features. They can stay up to date in regards to technology, which helps people explore and gain knowledge.

5. Shopping

Online shopping has become the norm; with a simple click, you get goods delivered to your doorstep. Some people live in fear of being scammed, which augmented reality can change. By using augmented reality, customers will be in a position to view goods or services more realistically. In addition, augmented reality will also make it easy for sellers to market their products.

These are only five of the many ways through which augmented reality can transform the future. However, there are still so many changes that augmented reality can make. Augmented reality has the potential to alter how we live.
