The State of Augmented Reality in 2018 [Infographic]

Augmented Reality (AR) can be regarded as one of the most exciting tech that has made its way into the mass market in recent years. Unlike virtual reality that creates an artificial world with the help of visual & virtual elements, augmented reality overlays virtual objects over the real world. Thus makes it more interactive and real.

Because of its high utilitarian benefits, augmented reality is being widely used by different industries, covering ecommerce, entertainment, healthcare, retail and marketing, education, fashion, travel and tourism and many others.

Imagine trying out different lipsticks, mascara, powder, as well as other makeup products right on your own digital face without ever setting foot on a makeup store, or visualizing the skins over the animal skeletons on display in a museum. Imagine fixing your car with help from a professional technician who virtually come into your garage and walk you through the repair.

Those are just some powerful real-world applications of AR, an industry that’s predicted to have over one billion users by 2020, with nearly $100 billion in expected revenue by 2021.

Augmented Reality is going to be the future technology and will have a big impact on our day-to-day life. However, despite the great progressions that have already been made since AR was first introduced, the truth is there’re still years of research and development work standing between us and immersive AR for the mainstream.

So where are we now? This infographic, put together by Make a Video Hub team gives us a quick overview of the current state of AR in 2018.
