Immersive Tech

Immersive technology refers to technology that blurs the line between the physical world and digital or simulated world, thereby creating a sense of immersion. The two most common are Augmented reality, technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world; and Virtual reality, an interactive computer-generated experience taking place within a simulated environment

Now past a phase of being heavily hyped there is now increasingly affordable hardware, a new startups culture with strong investor interest in the sector and real useable solutions outside of the entertainment sector. Leading to more take-up in industry and now the public sector, which has an increasing focus on the possibilities of emerging technology
