Spatial computing is a term most people haven’t heard, but something most people have heard of is virtual reality. The idea of being transported into an entirely digital world is becoming increasingly popular. Virtual reality represents only one half of spatial computing though, augmented reality being the other.
Augmented reality overlays and augments physical reality with digital information. While virtual reality has seen most of its use in gaming, augmented reality has seen many more practical uses. This can range from allowing surgeons to superimpose correct surgical locations to glasses that create sound through bone conduction. The advantage of augmented reality is it is cheaper and it is smaller.
This is the way forward for augmented and virtual reality alike, becoming a smaller and cheaper resource. AR glasses like google glass have been relative failures in the past, yet the technology is evolving fast. More and more AR and VR alike are becoming more practical and more easy to use. The way forward for spatial computing isn’t necessarily the most advanced hardware in existence. Instead, it’s making the hardware small enough and practical enough for a range of people to use. Technology continues to become more integrated and this is simply the next step.
