AR Cloud uses spatial computing and computer vision to create a digital data overlay for the physical world. It will allow AR experiences to be sophisticated, shared and persistent. In the same way that “search” revolutionized the internet, AR Cloud will completely change the way we access information about the world.

Debunking the AR Cloud

We all live under the same sun. And eventually, we will share the same (AR)-Cloud.
That is re-phrasing the vision of Ori Inbar, a well known AR thought leader. The AR Cloud is, supposedly, the promise that will finally make augmented reality go mainstream. But what is the AR Cloud all about? And: Will there really be one cloud for all of us? Probably not. Here is why I don’t think there will be one cloud for us all.

Persistence Becomes the Focus

This networked mesh of constant, spatial data has been deemed the AR cloud, and it’s being heralded as one of the most important software engines of the decade. When applied to world-scale AR, the illusion is that your behavior can be traced back to a physical location, detectable through any mobile device.

The Urgent Case For Open AR Cloud

The non profit behind the leading AR+VR conference and expo has announced a major initiative to promote an Open AR Cloud. 'The AR Cloud will be the single most important software infrastructure in computing, far more valuable than Facebook's social graph or Google's pagerank index,' says Augmented World Expo Founder and CEO Ori Inbar.

Who Is Seeding The AR Cloud?

This trillion dollar opportunity depends on three things working seamlessly together; computer vision, AI, and the AR cloud. Not surprisingly, tech giants Amazon, Google, and Facebook, we well as startups large (Magic Leap) and small (6D.ai, Placenote) are working to address some or all of these problems.

The AR Cloud Explained

The background is that consumer AR apps have fallen short of expectations because they’re fairly one-dimensional and underwhelming. Inbar likens this to surfing the web in 1996: We didn’t have the level of content and social interaction that would come to define web 2.0 a decade later.

Data

Virtual & Augmented Reality are immersive technologies that provide new and powerful ways for people to generate, use and interact with digital information. These technologies take traditional media beyond conventional screens and use photographic images, video or computer generated graphics (sometimes provided as an 360-degree view within your field of vision) as a new communication and interaction medium that can be used across your company from marketing and sales to field services, training and data visualization.
Companies like Walmart, Farmers Insurance and Boeing have already begun deploying this technology across their organizations for training. Specific examples of how other brands are using VR/AR right now are detailed below.
Whether you are a brand marketer, director of operations, run a line of business or head of HR, there are many ways you can deploy this technology to generate substantial revenue, increase productivity or improve safety.
