Virtual Reality (VR) is an interactive, virtual, three-dimensional, computer-generated environment. Augmented Reality (AR) allows digital images to be superimposed over a user’s real-world environment through a smartphone, headset, or other device.

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) allows varying devices and other appliances–including phones, tablets, TVs and refrigerators–to communicate to one another through the web. The IoT movement offers retailers opportunities to enhance the customer experience, supply chain effectiveness, and create new channels and revenue streams.
Virtual spaces are changing the retail experience – from 360 images of products in e-commerce; to shoppable 3D objects in web stores; to immersive 3D products in virtual reality, augmented reality, and gaming applications; to personalized 3D printed products. While 3D display technologies can enhance your online strategy, 3D printing has the potential to transform the manufacturing process and uniquely customize products. This webinar will explore the full range of 3D technologies available, how retailers today are using 3D printing, and the effects of 3D applications on the industry.
Future webinars will address autonomous vehicles, drones, digital traceability, and computer vision.
