CUSTOM AUGMENTED REALITY FAQ:

Through the use of a mobile phone, tablet, or smart glasses, augmented reality solutions allow you to link the digital and physical worlds by overlaying 3D models, animations, videos, images, and other relevant information into the real world.

Through the use of a VR headset, virtual reality has the ability to transports a user into a virtual world, fully immersing them in that environment. The creation of virtual reality environments is developed using either computer-generated animation or filmed with a specialised 360⁰ VR camera that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a real-world environment.

The fundamental difference between augmented and virtual reality is that virtual reality is closed and fully immersive, transporting users into a virtual world. Augmented reality, on the other hand, is open and only partially immersive as digital content is augmented into the world around you in real-time.

Due to the nature of custom AR solutions, it is not possible to give accurate costing without a thorough understanding of the solution you want to develop. Our preferred approach is to work off an allocated budget. Based on the budget provided, we are able to work within a set of parameters to ensure that you get the most value for money. However, we understand that not all customers are able to provide a budget, and in which case, we will help breakdown your augmented reality solution to ensure that we provide accurate costs.

The time it takes to develop a custom augmented reality solution is dependent on numerous factors that are specific to each project. A detailed timeline document with key milestones will be supplied at the start of each project, whereas Friday feedback sessions ensure that you are constantly involved in the development process.

Over the years, our mixed reality studio has successfully implemented numerous augmented reality solutions into a multitude of industries. Our experiences in augmented reality development has shown us that AR can be incorporated into most businesses and industries. As with all our software development, bizAR seeks to understand the problem and custom develop a value-driven augmented reality solution to address this problem.

Marker-based augmented reality requires you to scan an image to access the augmented reality experience. Images can range from your company’s logo to specific print material that has been designed for a marketing campaign. We will upload your image into our system to ensure that it is suitable to provide a seamless augmented reality experience. There are a few more tips and tricks, but we will cross that bridge in your project kick-off meeting.

Markerless augmented reality, also known as SLAM, are applications that do not require you to scan an image or object to unlock the augmented reality experience. Through the use of local area mapping, you are able to seamlessly integrate digital content into the world around you.

A few years ago, WebAR was not possible. However, with the rapid advancement of technology, WebAR has become a powerful medium for organisations looking to seamlessly adopt augmented reality into their digital transformation process. Like mobile AR applications, WebAR allows users to incorporate 3D models, animations, and videos via marker-based or markerless tracking. However, the trade-off comes in the form of limited functionality and interaction that is achievable with WebAR. We will help you decide which is the right approach for your augmented reality project.

As it stands, augmented reality smart glasses not only vary significantly in shape and size but functionality and usability. That being said, the best augmented reality smart glasses devices are dependant on the solution that your business is trying to incorporate. As a pioneer in AR smart glasses, our mixed reality studio has successfully developed augmented reality software solutions for smart glass hardware such as Microsoft Hololens, Realwear, Vuzix, and Epson. We are also actively tracking the progress of Apple’s augmented reality smart glasses and eagerly await their release.
