As technology like Augmented (AR), Virtual (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR) as well as AI become better and better, the use cases for business continue to grow. In this week's fascinating episode, Ted Dinsmore from SphereGen Technologies explains what these technologies are and how they can be used to solve complex business challenges.


After initially serving the medical industry, Ted realized that AR/VR/MR and AI could make a big impact on manufacturing as well. In this episode, Ted walks Ari through some of the use cases of each technology to help our listeners imagine what could be done in their our facility.


Technologies like these are vital as the older manufacturing leaders must pass on vital information to a younger, more technically savvy generation. The uses of new technology are only limited by your imagination…so come imagine what can be accomplished.
