Today’s Manufacturers Are Adopting Mixed Reality and 3D Printing With Metal
"While many manufacturers are installing sensors on their equipment to make it more intelligent, others are adopting some of today’s cutting-edge technologies, like augmented-reality systems, virtual-reality headsets, and 3D printers using new materials. Read how the aerospace and automotive industries and others are transforming their operations and improving productivity."
The Road Ahead for Clinical VR
"The concept of using VR for healthcare applications is not new; in fact in the early 1990’s researchers were investigating the use of VR in clinical settings, but the technology proved to be clunky and not user friendly. Fast-forward a few years and as technology and design of VR headsets and video graphics improved a reemergence of VR for clinical applications began."
The Legal Hazards of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Apps
As virtual- and augmented-reality technologies mature, legal questions are emerging that could trip up VR and AR developers. IEEE Spectrum talked with Robyn Chatwood, of the international law firm Dentons, about the legal challenges. Liability and intellectual property issues are just two areas developers need to know about.
