Spatial Computing: The Game-Changer for Our Everyday Lives

As we step into the future, Spatial Computing is leading the charge, redefining how we perceive our world. Experts project a surge in the AR/VR B2C industry from $31.12 billion in 2023 to $52.05 billion by 2027. Noteworthy names like Lumus are behind this transformative technology that spans from reality to Virtual Reality (VR), via Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR).

In the AR domain, advancements such as Lumus’ Z-Lens and Elbit’s Everysight are making waves. Z-Lens merges AR functionality with users’ vision prescriptions, while Everysight offers designer glasses that connect to your devices. In the realm of MR, devices like Meta Quest 3 and Apple Vision Pro blend digital elements with reality.

On the VR front, Meta Quest 2 offers a fully immersive experience, proving particularly useful in applications like VRpilot, which aids pilot training. By 2024, it is estimated that a staggering 1.4 billion devices worldwide will have AR capabilities.

Spatial Computing has a profound impact on our work, play, and education. AR aids in holographic business calls, enhances design and building projects, and provides real-time translation services. It also changes the way we game, work out, shop, navigate, and learn by offering immersive 3D visuals, sounds, and haptics.

In 2023, we witnessed a shift from smartphones to near-to-eye displays, with AR glasses sales surging by over 45%. This shift is attributed to the impressive efficiency and brightness of reflective waveguide technology, which is at the heart of AR glasses. Spatial computing, as Lumus suggests, is poised to completely revolutionize our online and offline interactions. The road ahead for Spatial Computing is vibrant and promising.
