Some very cool new tools for Design & Engineering will be growing in 2019.
I had a blast trying out this technology. I was using a virtual reality head set and realized immediately how important that this was going to be for creating new products. Immersive Design, whats it all about. I read some articles about this early last year and as of today, there is much more discussion about it. Immersive design comes in many forms including (Extended Reality) XR, Virtual reality (VR), Augmented Reality AR, and MR ( Mixed Reality). We can use XR to create better products, Pretty cool, but can we actually use it to help the overall engineering development process?
I have been in the business of creating new products for over 30 years now and I have been fortunate to be able to use all the newest technology that my company could afford. This technology represent both a disruption and an opportunity for people who make things. With immersive design, engineers, designers, and builders can quickly and easily turn their CAD data into interactive, real-time experiences. XR, AR, VR, and MR let you:
Navigate data-rich design environments
Make better-informed decisions
Create compelling experiences
Some articles included here to help navigate the differences and a very cool video from Ford on how they use the different technologies.
Looking forward to 2019, please let us know if there is any way we can assist you in your new product development efforts.
