Interaction

Once the stuff of science fiction, Augmented Reality, Human Machine Interface and Virtual Reality have arrived.

The way we interact with the digital world is evolving at a dizzying pace. Buttons, keyboards and computer mice are being swapped out for touchscreens, voice recognition and human gesture. Once the stuff of science fiction, Augmented Reality, Human Machine Interface and Virtual Reality have arrived. And they’re improving at a breakneck speed thanks to new leaps in technology and engineering. New trends include eye-scrolling technology while telekinetic activators that control devices with thought could be on the horizon. The impact on business is impressive, with Virtual reality alone projected to be a $5.2 billion market by 2018. Consumer, payments, e-commerce, automotive and healthcare are among the many markets being reshaped by interaction. Also, everything from the field of neuroscience to NASA will benefit from advances in augmented reality. How will all of these big ideas be possible? Certainly not without expert global manufacturing partners to guide and move innovation forward.
