Mobile AR: What it is and what the future holds

Posted by Charles Preuss on 10/17/18 8:00 AM

Virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality: these are all buzzwords today but what do they really mean and what impact will they have on our world? Let’s start with some basic definitions.

  • Augmented reality (AR): the addition or overlay of digital content to our physical world, in which the digital content does not react with the real world
  • Virtual reality (VR): an immersive artificial reality that replaces the real world, allowing the user to interact within that virtual world
  • Mixed reality (MR): the addition of digital content to the physical world, where the content can also interact with physical elements (mix of AR and VR)

For this blog, we’ll explore augmented reality, specifically mobile AR, both as it exists now and what to expect in the future.

Emerging Technology in the Construction Industry

Posted by Charles Preuss on 8/24/18 11:32 AM

The construction industry has lagged behind others in terms of technology , and is currently the second least digitized sector in the U.S. (and one of the least digitized industries worldwide). This lack of technology adoption has nearly stagnated construction labor-productivity growth in the past 20 years. In fact, if the construction industry were to catch up with the rest of the world, it could add approximately $1.6 trillion to the global economy.

In recent years, however, the construction industry has seen something of a tech boom, with several emerging technologies offering huge benefits to the industry.
