The Future of Education through AR and VR Enhancements is a short interactive film on how Virtual and Augmented Reality, along with modern artificial and learning algorithms, can be used to deliver and enhance the current education system at all levels.

This piece demonstrates how using relatively inexpensive technologies available today can be harnessed and combined to deliver a rich and interactive educational experience for all users at all levels. This is achieved through the use of combining mobile Augmented Reality systems using Machine Vision to deliver context-sensitive information to the user when requested. Virtual Reality is used to fully immerse educators and learners in any imaginable scenario to deliver and consume content in a safe and structured environment.

By their very nature, these technologies are scalable and adaptable, making them perfect tools to be harnessed by almost any sector, not just Education.

A brief glimpse into the not-too-distant future

Advancements in mobile processing power, battery life, high-speed network connections, miniaturized display technology, artificial intelligence, and machine vision will revolutionize how we view and interact with the environment around us.

This brief concept shows how these technologies can be combined to enhance and engage the educational experience for both learner and lecturer.
