Examples of Immersive Technologies in Hybrid Work
Virtual Reality (VR)
VR tools can enhance meetings in hybrid workplaces. For example, employees who telework can wear a VR headset to attend meetings, have conversations and view shared content with coworkers. The immersive experience that VR creates can help these employees feel as though they are in an office.
Augmented Reality (AR)
AR can enhance training and remote assistance in hybrid workplaces. For example, a repair technician working in a factory can use AR to view step-by-step instructions on top of real-world objects and environments. This can help technicians make complex repairs without requiring in-person assistance.
Mixed Reality (MR)
MR can enhance employee collaboration in hybrid workplaces. For example, employees in different locations can use an MR meeting tool to collaborate and share digital content such as 3D objects, presentations and designs. This can make hybrid meetings more productive and feel similar to in-office meetings.
