With Tablets and Smartphones taking a prime spot in an average employee’s workday, there are growing applications for using interactive mobile applications integrated with contextual augmented reality features to provide some really cool performance support applications. Here are a couple of screenshots that depict this.
The above screenshot is a visualization of IBM’s pilot project in using AR for data centers. The use case involves of the usage of augmented reality for providing information about each asset overlaid on top of the asset on the device. This information could show data like temperature, memory usage and any other critical information.
Here is another use case (see above). The user manual that comes with electronic devices is usually a folded sheet of paper or a book. AR can bring life to the rather static and intimidating collection of troubleshooting information in the user manual.
