Augmented reality (AR) is quickly becoming more common in today’s digital world. In 2021, 810 million people used an AR program or app on a mobile device. Projections suggest that figure will rise to 1.4 billion people by 2024.
This upward trend indicates that tech users are embracing AR, which provides digital enhancements to real-world environments. These experiences are usually available through mobile phones or tablets, but there are also high-tech glasses and headgear made especially for AR.
Despite its popularity, AR development has encountered roadblocks. In addition to low mobile data speed and device limitations, the biggest issue is that it is difficult to create and distribute AR content.
Most AR developments have been for specialized purposes, such as healthcare procedures, security, real estate, or gaming. Most people still rely on traditional browsers and apps when they want information.
However, the AR cloud aims to make augmented reality more accessible to everyone.
