What’s the Market Value for Industrial Wearables?

Recently, my editorial team and I were discussing an article that claimed Fitbit’s sales struggles bode poorly for the wearables market as a whole. The article cited lackluster 2016 holiday sales of fitness trackers and subsequent layoffs at Fitbit as evidence that the wearables market was “stagnant.” But here’s my point—since when did we give Fitbit so much say over the entire wearables space?

Virtual Reality for Smart Cities and Citizens

In a world that offers virtual experiences, how will society change? Imagine a world in which VR (virtual reality) technology enhanced and improved reality in urban planning and building, product design, education and training, and beyond. Imagine how seamless VR-enabled telecommuting and telepresence capabilities could change the way cities operate—for instance, by redefining the need for physical transportation systems—or alter the way humans engage in cultural experiences like art and music? Imagining the possibilities of virtual reality and its partner in crime, AR (augmented reality), isn’t the hard part, unfortunately. The hard part is making it real on a grand scale.

AR and the Enterprise

It seems like out of nowhere augmented reality, known as “AR,” has come into its own, or more importantly, is coming of age. The technology, which merges the physical and digital worlds, is by nature engaging. Because it is so engaging, AR has ignited the flame of innovation and is sparking growth in the IoT (Internet of Things). From pure consumer plays to enterprise applications in retail, manufacturing, aerospace and defense, medical, and beyond, AR-enabled solutions are offering new, immersive, and even exciting ways for users to experience digital content.

AR Is Changing the Way We View the IoT World

Augmented reality, otherwise known as AR technology, is pretty impressive stuff when you consider what it can, or more importantly, what it is doing in the area of maintenance, repair, and service. It goes way beyond what is being offered in retail outlets. Today AR has made some serious leaps and bounds and manufacturers are going to be the serious beneficiaries in the IoT (Internet of Things) world.
