Examining the global impact of technology
FUTURE TALK #71
Augmented Reality
This episode examines an amazing new technology called augmented reality. The difference between augmented reality, or AR, and virtual reality, or VR, is that in VR, you put on a special headset and immerse yourself in a totally computer generated world, while in AR, you put on a headset and you’re still in the real world, but with highly relevant and highly informative computer generated images floating in front of you. There are a lot of very practical uses for this technology, which we explore with our two guests. Nabil Chehade is Director of Professional Services at Atheer, a leading maker of AR products. Nabil was the first employee at Atheer, is head of their AirSuite team, and gives a live demonstration of how their products work. Ori Inbar is founder and director of Super Ventures, a startup incubator fund dedicated entirely to AR startups. He’s also the co-founder of the annual Augmented World Expo, the world’s top showcase for AR innovation, and is considered a leading visionary in the potential and future of AR. Martin Wasserman hosts.
