Mobile eXtended Reality (XR) is poised to become one of history’s most disruptive computing platforms. It is expected to transform the way we interact with the world around us every day – redefining education, healthcare, entertainment and how we navigate our world and with the potential to exponentially increase productivity. XR is inherently meant to be mobile, intuitive and always connected. Many new technologies in the areas of low power visual processing, cognition, and connectivity are required for this vision to become reality. This presentation will discuss:
- Device challenges for XR with technology innovation and the HMD Accelerator Program
- The evolution of content for XR and examples of unprecedented experiences that XR is expected to enable
- The future of XR with 5G and opportunities for operators
