As augmented reality and virtual reality rule the world, more and more companies benefit from using reality in their operations, especially in today's environment where remote connectivity technology is more popular. While enterprise AR/VR clients were limited until recently, the industry is now adopting these technologies in marketing and advertising activities with widespread success. From education and retail to fashion and hospitality, there are industries that can greatly benefit from AR/VR. The most popular VR applications today employ comprehensive control of a user's senses (especially sight and hearing) to produce a fully immersive experience that immerses the user in a fully virtual environment that feels very realistic.


With a big number of startups and established organizations offering bundled experiences and services geared at schools, virtual reality is already making significant inroads into education. Facebook, HTC, and the European Commission all use Engage's platform to facilitate remote learning. And, according to research released in 2019, medical students who were trained using virtual reality were able to do some procedures faster and more accurately than their classmates who were trained using traditional methods. It might be used in training to safely recreate a variety of hazardous or stressful situations and track how we react to them. Walmart, for example, has used it to prepare retail employees for Black Friday, training them on how to best operate in crowded store conditions with long lines of consumers.


Many aspects of our working lives have changed as a result of the epidemic, including the widespread adoption of remote working by significant numbers of employees. This presents a number of issues, including the need to maintain an environment that encourages cooperative work and the development of company culture. VR-based solutions are rapidly gaining traction as a means of addressing these issues.


Take, for example, medical education. Before reaching the pinnacle of her career, a cardiologist may practice for years and continue to train.  Many of the most serious medical issues are extremely rare, requiring a doctor to work for years before coming across them and developing experience in how to diagnose and treat them. Virtual reality training is a time-saving option. Because of its ability to repeatedly offer immersive, realistic scenarios, the technology may allow clinicians to gain knowledge on illnesses before seeing them in real patients.
