The realm of spatial computing, as championed by Lumus, is rapidly revolutionizing our daily experiences. Forecasts show a staggering projection for the AR/VR B2C industry: $31.12 billion by 2023, with an impressive leap to $52.05 billion by 2027. This technological marvel spans from pure reality to virtual reality, encompassing augmented and mixed reality in between.
Consider Lumus’ Z-Lens. It is a perfect blend of AR functionality with vision prescriptions, eliminating the need for cumbersome inserts. Moreover, the device is light, strap-free, and aesthetically appealing. Then there's Apple Vision Pro, a testament to the wonders of mixed reality. It fuses our physical environment with digital content, while the device shrinks in size. When we explore the application, the picture gets even clearer. From gaming and education to work and health, spatial computing's reach is vast. BAE factory workers, for instance, harness AR to reduce their manual building time by a whopping 40%. Meanwhile, in education, interactive field trips transport students to different landmarks, even across time.
Yet, the innovations do not end there. As we embrace near-to-eye displays, traditional smartphones are seeing a decline. 2023 witnessed smartphone sales dip by 14%, whereas AR glasses experienced a whopping 45% growth. The secret? Waveguide technology. Especially reflective waveguides, boasting significant battery efficiency, enhanced brightness, and an 80-degree field of view.
Lumus paints a future where spatial computing is not just a tech trend but an integral part of our daily lives. It is not just about digitization; it is about a digital transformation that redefines human interaction, both online and offline.
