Today, people are meeting, teaching, reading, learning online through messaging, audio, and video calling apps. But in the coming years, with the help of augmented reality technology, they’ll feel that they’re together in one room even though they literally are miles apart from each other. AR services allow people to superimpose virtual events to physical environments enabling them to have immersive experience using the head-mounted display units.
Let’s take an example — A woman sitting in the USA wants to buy lipsticks from a store in France but aren’t able to decide the color. With the help of AR apps, she’s now able to see the color and pick the one that suits her.
That said, let’s see what to expect from Facebook connect 2020.
Launching on 16th September 2020, it’ll be one of a kind event hosting 35+ speakers and 15+ sessions. Some topics that are going to be discussed are as follows:
- How to develop immersive and unique experiences with the help of augmented reality technology that engages human sensory?
