The Impact of Augmented Reality on Industrial Design

Augmented reality is just getting started, and consumers can see a significant breakthrough in the upcoming years. The evolution of augmented reality is going to be rapid, and will drastically change the way of industrial design for both inventors and consumers. The greatest opportunity for augmented reality lies in the area of product development and industrial design. Augmented reality holds the power to help consumers bring their creativity to visual a product, quickly speeding up the production process. This will significantly impact the field of industrial design, revolutionizing the way that industrial designers create and design. New technologies that are emerging are allowing for traditional manufacturing and methods to be replaced with additive manufacturing; a process that can undergo numerous design iterations at a time. This blog demonstrates that augmented reality is definitely in, as it brings ideas to life, allowing for visualization in context.


Augmented Reality Is An Experience 

Being able to visualize your product is of utmost importance in the early stages of development and product design experience. While these models are digital, until the prototyping process is done it is hard to visualize the product in a physical sense. Augmented reality brings the product to the real world, allowing for the inventor to see it within the actual context of consumer usage. This way fixes and touching up can be done to any part of the industrial design of the product. Augmented reality pulls the ability to visualize and understand the potential of an idea. It is such a flexible process that is able to employ different tools to enhance the industrial design process simultaneously. This process saves both time and resources during the industrial design process.

Augmented reality = Opportunity 

Augmented reality also allows industrial designers to modify and test different variations of the test product. This can be done through virtual reality elements, to make adjustments in current time and assess how it would change the product. Fine tuning the product will become so much easier for both designers and clients, allowing for a more effective collaboration process.

Overall, augmented reality has the capability to turn the industrial design world upside down, giving industrial designers the opportunity to enhance their processes among themselves and clients. As technology continues to grow and advances, industrial designers will only have increased opportunities to streamline their processes, leading to more efficient and customer
