VR & AR at VRTGO 2016

For those who think VR, AR and MR are only applicable to gaming, think again; as the annual VRTGO conference more than demonstrated this year, such technologies also have a key role to play in 'serious' applications. VRTGO - pronounced 'vertigo' - is Europe's leading event of its kind in the sector, which I had the privilege of attending with colleagues Eduards Denisjonoks, Andy Kelly, Craig Tweedy and Owen Wright. Having taken valuable feedback from Eduards and Andy on board, I'd now like to share my thoughts on some of the most fascinating uses of this fast-developing hardware.
