Ever wondered what this thing AR/VR is and what it’s worth for, besides gaming? Been concerned that by the time AR/VR become mainstream it will be already too late to pioneer visionary ideas? Heard that it’s hard and cumbersome to do AR development today? Wanted to get your hands dirty with some experiments but never got the time because of the steep learning curve?
You are not alone, we at Progress Telerik asked ourselves the very same questions.
Augmented reality is a technology that adds enormous value in multiple business use cases – from virtual control rooms, better readability of data by plotting it into the real 3D space, to real-time remote assistance and collaboration directly on the field – to name a few. While still early market today, especially for Line of Business applications, we envision that AR/VR will soon play significant role in multiple businesses and more and more companies will invest in building software for solving existing problems more efficiently through augmented and/or virtual reality.
Indeed, the development workflow for building immersive 3D AR applications today is hard, has a steep learning curve and lacks various building blocks that are de-facto standard in traditional 2D UIs like ASP.NET, WinForms and WPF. As the leading vendor of productivity tools and frameworks for the .NET world, with more than 15 years of commitment to help every developer be a hero, it is our belief that a productive development ecosystem should be armed with a comprehensive set of UX paradigms, components and patterns that help developers focus primarily on the business logic, not fight with the platform to achieve simple things.
