Perhaps you have seen a movie in 3D at the theater. But are you aware that this same technology is moving out of the movies and into the mainstream of modeling and virtual reality technology. No longer reserved for future technology anymore, today it is becoming a reality in the everyday world. How can this technology benefit you, and how do you gain get use of it? The answers are easier than you think.
How are these technologies transitioning from pure entertainment to useful businesses tools?
Most of us recall the beginnings of 3D, but today this technology has come a long way. 3D and virtual reality are at the cutting edge of business today, providing companies with the ability to demonstrate products, provide live 3D models, and present their services in ways that were previously unheard of. Think about having the ability to share a 3-dimensional model of your product with potential clients from the comfort of their own home or office – anywhere in the world. Can you imagine the ability to create a virtual storefront where people can truly feel they have walked right into a physical space? These tools and techniques are truly becoming a reality today.
The creation of a prototype of a product has traditionally been a relatively long and laborious process. But today, 3-dimensional printers can create a model or prototype quickly and accurately. Just as you are used to printing out a photo of an object, you can “print” an actual model of it. This allows you to bring ideas to life easily, to work on them, and present them whenever they are needed. Rapid prototyping is at the cutting edge of model design, and means entrepreneurs have a new tool at their disposal for bringing life to their idea.
This is only the surface of the new technology available and what it can do for business today; the applications are nearly endless.
A closer look at the new technology.
3-D Presentations. New technology can now create three-dimensional displays to create sales and marketing as well as training presentations that go beyond the PowerPoint presentations we have all become used to seeing. Interactive programs for learning and exploring, prototypes and virtual and holographic images– the range of uses for this technology is nearly limitless. Can you imagine that medical professionals may be able to create a holographic image of a patient, and create the possibility of consulting from across many miles on surgical and other treatment approaches?
Rapid Prototyping. The creation of a prototype quickly and easily is at hand. It’s like sending a document to a printer. This technology allows the image of a prototype to be sent to a three-dimensional “printer” where the prototype is created. These highly detailed prototypes can be created in a fraction of the time, moving business forward more quickly. There are numerous benefits across a wide range of fields that can be easily envisioned – imagine the creation of a prototype for a new artificial limb – made real and testable in a fraction of the time.
CAVE (Computer Animated Virtual Reality). Just imagine visiting another location – anywhere in the world, without actually going there. Virtual reality is making it possible. The technology that allows you to feel as if you are actually in a location thousands of miles away is only just starting to see the incredible range of applications for business. Can you envision having customers visit your virtual store, seeing and hearing the sounds of a retail environment while making a purchase? This technology is in the not to distant future.
How can these technologies be accessed?
There’s no need to be a Hollywood producer or a Fortune 500 company anymore to gain access to the latest technology. The world has changed, and the communities being formed via the internet provide new opportunities for established businesses and new entrepreneurs alike.
The Creation and presentation of an idea has never been easier thanks to the move of 3D towards more practical applications, and gaining access to that technology has never been easier either. Making the right connections with the right people will remain the key to gaining access to the newest available products and services, and this won’t changed. The difference is, today those connections are simpler to achieve, because the internet allows easier access to a wide variety of people and products.
