Use Cases

Here are some modern use cases demonstrating the power of AR:


Virtual Showrooms

Retailers are leveraging AR to create virtual showrooms where customers can explore products in a realistic, interactive environment. Shoppers can view products from different angles, see detailed information, and even place items in their home setting using AR apps, enhancing the shopping experience and driving sales.


Interactive Manuals

Car manufacturers are utilizing AR to provide interactive user manuals. Owners can use their smartphones or AR glasses to scan parts of their vehicle and receive step-by-step maintenance instructions, troubleshooting tips, and safety information. This innovative approach simplifies vehicle maintenance and improves user satisfaction.


Augmented Tours

AR is transforming the tourism industry by offering augmented tours of historical sites, museums, and cities. Visitors can use AR apps to view historical reconstructions, access additional information, and interact with digital guides. This enhances the educational value and engagement of the tour, providing a richer visitor experience.


Patient Education

In the healthcare sector, AR is being used to educate patients about their medical conditions and treatment options. Doctors can use AR apps to show patients 3D models of their anatomy, explain procedures, and visualize the effects of treatments. This improves patient understanding and communication, leading to better health outcomes.


Project Visualization

AR is revolutionizing construction by allowing project managers and clients to visualize building designs on-site. Using AR glasses or apps, stakeholders can see a virtual representation of the completed project superimposed on the construction site, making it easier to identify potential issues and make informed decisions.
