If you think about the possibility of VR in the workplace and what it can do for collaboration and communication both internally and externally, the possibilities are extremely exciting. We have offices in multiple countries and sometimes we have people all over the world trying to collaborate, it will make a world of difference when the day comes that we can interact virtually with each other. Thinking about what difference the introduction of email, webcams, Skype has made to the working world this next stage has the potential to really take things to the next level.
Thanks to an array of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies in development right now, this scenario isn't that far away. And while VR might be in the news lately because some events in the Rio Olympics will be broadcast in VR this August, the technology's biggest impact is likely to be in the workplace. At the moment, VR is in its early, awkward adolescence, but these are four of the ways we can probably expect it to transform how we work with one another in the years ahead.
