What is Immersive Technology?
The term ‘Immersive Technologies’ covers a range of different technologies which provide you with the experience of being immersed in, or enable you to view or interact with simulated objects and environments. These range from 360-degree photography and video to Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Virtual and Augmented Reality offer a new medium for visualisation. Where previous technologies allowed us only two-dimensional representations, these new immersive technologies will allow us to experience three dimensional environments that can occupy our entire field of view.
