There are strong use-cases for augmented and mixed reality outside of entertainment. One particularly practical use is in the manufacturing industry. It’s an industry with well-established workflows and product cycles, but also known problems and pinch-points. In this talk, we will walk through each step of the Product Lifecycle Management workflow and discuss how mixed reality is helping manufacturers each step of the way. We will also cover the background of mixed reality and the key differences between AR, MR, and VR.
