AR will develop side-by-side with the mobile technologies, and for example - more Augmented Reality applications that provide additional information will enhances what is already there. There are so many areas that AR can be involved and maybe the most important is computer games that also includes the mobile games. In the following areas AR can also be used and that includes:


  • Military e.g. used in military to provide locations of enemy positions
  • Medical Research e.g. about anatomy training for medical students
  • Education e.g. to explore the aspects of an ancient civilization as part of a history lesson
  • Marketing and Commercial e.g. can be used to promote a new product
  • Industry e.g. helping with prototyping (engineering)
  • Safety e.g. used as part of a road safety campaign
  • Art and Architecture e.g. as part of a mixed media artwork

No doubt augmented reality is the most mind-captivating technology, unlike any other tech out there. It’s like the most significant thing discovered since-sliced-bread. It has brought advancements to many fields and industries such as aviation, business, manufacturing, retail, education, marketing/advertising, and more.

  • And most notably, the gaming and entertainment industries. Combining the game visual and audio content with the user’s environment in real time and creating an immersive experience. It significantly makes these industries to stand out in the market dramatically, and according to prediction, by 2020, AR technology will grow, picking up its pace and break all the headlines.
  • What about AR in the health care sector? By 2025 according to forecasts by tech insiders, the revenue from augmented reality will be approximately $5 billion with expectations to see the most advancements of AR technology in the healthcare industry. For example, the Accuvein scanner is already being used in hospitals to augment veins and valves for healthcare professionals effective IV placement.
  • Also, augmented reality is rapidly revolutionizing the travel industry and becoming what 60% of travelers believe to be the future of tourism. The integration of augmented reality into airlines seems to be giving 90 % of travelers around the globe a unique traveling experience.

 To give us a proper idea of the future of AR, we have to see some of the futuristic science-fiction movies. The intention was to provide for us a science-based reality. And today, AR is even available on mobile phones and has also been implemented in most industries.


  • One of the most exciting futures for AR technology is that Automobile industries are currently putting together AR dashboard-mounted display graphics from around a vehicle using video footage, increasing the driver’s comfort levels in the car, while helping to reduce accidents with its landmark identification capability. And also, automobile companies like Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, and Tesla, are planning to merge AR with artificial intelligence in the development of autonomous vehicles.

Other areas it is being implemented are:

  • -Education: The combination of AR and VR for teaching
  • -Manufacturing industries: AR training programs
  • -Mobile phone games like Pokemon-Go
  • -Social media consumer-facing apps like Snapchat and Instagram with -various AR fun filters like bunny ears, pig filter, and many more

Future of Augmented Reality

  1. AR Mobile Application Development

AR helps to redefine the mobile app development process and offers advanced and unique experience to the users. It helps businesses from diverse industries to deliver next-generation experience and stay ahead in a competitive market. The latest innovative technology enhances customer engagement with modern development functionalities and smooth app development process such as highly advanced animations and advanced sensors.


2. New Opportunities for Tourism Industry

AR is a powerful tool for the tourist industry, helping to enhance travel experiences by offering useful information in terms of navigation, guides, reviews and real-time images. With AR, developers can offer functionality such as a virtual tour to the users, it helps to improve decision making and by viewing the images, they can make the right decision according to their preferences.


Apart from this, AR can help travelers in many ways by recommending the best hotels and restaurants. However, it also excludes language barriers. Augmented Reality app helps to plan a seamless and interactive journey. With this technology, it allows us to avail natural experiences with different filters, AR avails natural experiences with filters, 3D animations, and texts.

3. Revamping the Automobile Industry

AR offers an automotive connectivity ecosystem. Car manufacturer Audi was one of the first brands to improve the physical showroom and created the world’s first digital showroom–Audi City–using AR. This innovation helps to boost sales and now, it also contributed to the driver’s safety.
