Emerging Technology: Augmented Realities


Firms such as Gensler are working with The Hive to develop augmented reality apps to bridge the gap between the physical and digital experience. With an experimental installation in Downtown Los Angeles,  an interface is provided where people can interact and use hand movements to view Gensler’s urban architecture.

IKEA is developing an application for augmented realities where the customer can visualize how a piece of furniture will look in there home.

How can we integrate this into the way the public interacts with urban planning?
