Augmented and virtual reality play a significant role in the areas of computer sciences, environmental sciences, mathematical sciences, engineering and psychology
new web applications and
professional interactive augmented reality and virtual reality experiences for smart phones tablets, television, video glasses and other smart wearable solutions such as virtual viewer and reality glasses.
Demand for content is growing at exponential rate allowing for almost 6 billion mobile applications downloaded since 2010. Growth in the number of start ups has decreased at a minimal rate holding constant since 2000. The difference is in the number of tablets sold in comparison to the number of personal computer and mobility is the stimulus where people want access to content on the go. Augmented reality is an advanced platform for accessing that content anywhere through mobile hardware, either tablet, phone or virtual wear.
I had the opportunity to speak with Howard Olah-Reiken, a Software Architect, App Developer, Virtual and Augmented Reality Innovator. I asked him what he thought augmented and virtual reality would be like for business in the years to come. You can also read my interview with Joe Rampolla, a seasoned AR blogger and online technology sector information portal. They both see VR and AR as the future for more than just consumer products. They both also have backgrounds in two very important areas in our economy, cyber-crime and the financial sector.
Howard Olah-Reiken worked on Wall St for many years dealing with the banking industry as well as hedge funds and derivatives. He also likes sports based events and gaming development. Currently he works solely in the world of virtual and augmented reality. He believes one can re brand their image by using sister apps that have special features. Customizing 360′ videos and valuating stock trades may not seem to have a lot in common but with the rise of IoT , everything changes. Howard uses virtual reality to upgrade existing mobile applications. You can start small and integrate unique content, share with online users dynamic mobile apps that help you attract customers while building a following in online media such as youtube, facebook twitter as well as others Eventually VR content will be as common as regular videos on YouTube and using custom made content specialized to highlight the unique qualities of your business or organization can help you gain loyalty by showing your followers how much you have in common with them in a realistic way.
Howard’s job as an adviser includes research and he creates a prototype for his clients while evaluating and measuring proficiency. He prefers an agile, one on one consultation but also works with a team of programmers and developers . He can add features to your already existing mobile business application. “Develop virtual reality with a mobile phone or tablet base that you and everyone can experience.”
Augmented reality as a customized option for print and publishing services. Marketing and advertising companies are not utilizing the technology as quickly as others but those who enter the game early have the chance to increase their business services by a rate of exponential profitability as the service grows and begins to catch on. Advertisements in print magazines and newspapers are both multi channel platforms that bring more data and experience to your customer anywhere and anytime.
... do AR apps make you money?
It may be surprising how much you already know about virtual reality but the developers and graphic designers definitely know more. There are a few books for “virtual and augmented reality dummies” and statistics do show it has not proven to be a “pot of gold” but with the number of mobile device users growing worldwide, user experiences offer brick and mortar as well as online vendors another channel to reach consumers on the go, anywhere and anytime.
Real Estate start ups are focusing on virtual reality and practical uses in their property and construction sector. Companies are creating programming /developer jobs in this type of technology and have begun selling 3D virtual tours. A new company merges virtual reality and selling real estate using google card board or virtual realty glasses like those featured below. They purchased a technology that they believe will help them sell more homes while reducing the time it takes for initial showings.
Virtual reality is an avenue to communicate with consumers in a world designed to help buyers feel, taste, smell your product and eventually make a purchase. High conversion rates show that applications which allow users to click through the virtual reality experience to the shopping cart tend to purchase featured products. It’s a great promotional tool which can increase brand awareness and customer retention that in the long run may also increase revenue.
If you are searching online for augmented reality you can download a mobile application and create your own content for free. Snapchat and Poke Mon Go are also similar .
If you want something more refined, programmers and developers are available. Professional customization is decisively the best bet for a business. You can also benefit from using a skilled technology advisor for branding your company.

Virtual Reality Video Glasses As A Promotional Tool
Great for entertainment, imagine watching your wedding anniversary in 360′ virtual reality using easy to wear and comfortable smart viewing glasses. Professional event marketing, sports and more.
People are willing to spend a lot on weddings, exhibits and conferences with the largest part of the budget costs centered on the experience, venue or location. Decidedly, its the memory that will add up to the most value.
BMW, the first automotive brand in the world to offer customers an interactive, 3-D augmented reality experience of their products in a pilot programme which was being rolled-out Using Tango, Google’s smartphone augmented reality technology, customers can explore their ideal BMW i3 or i8, as a real-size, interactive visualization. Buyers make decisions based on how they feel about a product. This type of user experience can be designed to allow advertisers the ability to connect with the buyer on a more emotional level. If you are loking for the latest models from BMW technology, try visiting Automotive.com or Top Gear.
Another example is the MINI which is revealing the shape of things to come at the Auto Shanghai show with a pioneering innovation. “MINI Augmented Vision gives an insight into how intelligent connectivity between a MINI car and eyewear into which relevant content is projected might work in the future,” explains Dr. Jörg Preißinger, project-manager MINI Augmented Vision, BMW Group research and technology. “Working with several Qualcomm companies, we have created an interlinked system and augmented reality eyewear with a characteristic MINI design that revolutionise the experience both in and outside the vehicle. This prototype with its customised, interactive functions succeeds in fusing augmented reality with the brand’s trademark sense of lifestyle.”
Using see-through technology, the AR eyewear shows relevant information in the driver’s direct field of vision but without concealing other road users, thereby serving to increase safety and comfort while driving.
The following functions will be projected into the field of view with MINI Augmented Vision:
Destination entry for navigation and transfer to vehicle: Selecting destination points when outside the vehicle, then transferring them to the vehicle.
First Mile / Last Mile: Navigation display from the current location to the vehicle or from the vehicle to the final destination.
Head-up display functions: Display of speed, speed limits etc. in the eyewear so the information is in the driver’s primary field of view, with data always shown in same place above steering wheel to make sure that no road users are concealed from sight.
Contact-analogue navigation and points of interest: Reality is enhanced by contact-analogue navigation arrows “on” the road, as well as display of points of interest along the route, such as open parking spaces. The driver´s attention can always stay focused on the traffic.
Messaging: A small icon is shown in the eyewear when a message is received. The SMS/message can then be read out by the car while driving for safety.
X-Ray View / transparent vehicle parts: A virtual view through parts of the vehicle (such as A-pillars and doors) serves to render external areas or objects concealed by the car visible.
Augmented Parking: This facilitates parking by projecting the images from a camera housed in the (farside) mirror into the eyewear. In this way, the distance from the curb can be clearly and easily ascertained.
