Spatial computing will revolutionize how we interact with the world and each other. Learn what it is, how it works, and why you need Kreitech, a Unity official vendor as part of the OINO group, to create amazing spatial computing products for entertainment and productivity.
Spatial computing has redefined what we understand as XR. It is a reality pushed by the market that has set new standards and possibilities. It is already transforming the way we work around experiences, the world and will change how interact with each other and our manners.
Spatial computing is the technology that enables us to create, manipulate, and navigate digital content concerning the physical environment. It combines elements of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mixed reality (MR), and artificial intelligence (AI) to create immersive and interactive experiences that blur the boundaries between the real and the virtual.
Spatial computing is not limited to gaming or entertainment. It has applications in various domains such as education, healthcare, tourism, manufacturing, retail, and more. Spatial computing can enhance learning outcomes, improve patient care, enrich travel experiences, optimize industrial processes, increase sales, and more. It will revolutionize social connection, collaboration, and creativity across distances and cultures.
But how does spatial computing work? And what are the challenges and opportunities of this technology? To answer these questions, we need to understand the key components and concepts of spatial computing.
Spatial computing relies on four main components: sensors, processors, displays, and software. Let’s take a look at each of them.
Spatial computing is based on three main concepts: spatial mapping, spatial understanding, and spatial interaction. Let’s see what they mean.
Recently Apple has revolutionized the concept with its Apple VisionPro headset and its VisionOS which has some unique characteristics for Spatial Computing. Now developers can make windows, volumes, and spaces that can be either shared or private. This lets apps put virtual things in the real world or take users to completely digital places.
It also has it's unique perks and tools:
SwiftUI and RealityKit: The platform uses SwiftUI and RealityKit to make immersive experiences in windows, volumes, and spaces, with the ability to show 3D content.
ARKit Integration: VisionOS works with ARKit to do things like map the world, detect objects, and adjust to the light, making sure that apps use ARKit’s features.
Eye and Hand Gesture Tracking: VisionPro’s smart tracking systems let users interact with apps in easy and natural ways, from using SwiftUI elements to playing with 3D content.
Audio Design: VisionOS has a multi-channel audio system with different kinds of sounds, such as spatial, ambient, and channel sounds, that let developers make realistic and immersive audio experiences.
Unity Integration: Developers can also use Unity’s tools to make new apps and games for VisionOS, using both VisionOS and Unity’s features like AR Foundation.
Spatial computing is the next frontier of technology that will revolutionize how we interact with the world and each other. It enables developers to create, manipulate, and navigate digital content concerning the physical environment, combining elements of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and artificial intelligence (AI) to create immersive and interactive experiences that blur the boundaries between the real and the virtual.
Spatial computing is here to stay and will create new opportunities and challenges for businesses and individuals whether it is for entertainment or productivity, so it's a great time to step into it.
