Mixed reality — what admittedly sounds like abstract futurism — turns out to be a realistic construction technology being leveraged at this very second. Don’t get mixed up, because mixed reality delivers real-world ROI by merging digital and physical environments.
This technology is called “mixed” reality because it blends virtual reality with the real world to immerse users into a “mixed” environment. Mixed reality makes project data more actionable by overlaying holographic data onto real-world environments.
The applications for facility management are endless — quality control, system monitoring, energy coordination, maintenance, remodels, etc. Any task that could benefit from increased data support and model visualization is a good candidate for mixed reality.
