VR? AR? It’s all MR, and it’s all changing fast. With advances in hardware and software happening continuously, new applications become possible for a range of industries—especially AEC. AU offers a wealth of useful content on this rapidly developing technology.
For starters, Jeff Mottle returned to AU Las Vegas in 2017 to host another gangbusters panel focused on the state of mixed reality for design visualization today—and where it’s headed over the next few years. With a panel that includes experts, creative directors, technologists, and designers, this AU session is a great way to take the pulse of the possibilities in VR, AR, and mixed reality and begin to think about how you can benefit from using it in your own practice.
