Virtual Reality technology has been around a while now. Remember how ‘cutting edge’ it was? It began, initially for medical, flight simulation, automobile industry design and military training purposes, but the developments over the past ten years or so have offered considerable benefits to a raft of businesses.

Under the umbrella term ‘Extended Reality’ (XR), which encapsulates Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR) there is a range of revolutionary experiences that companies are now applying.

Why is this important to Scottish companies? Essentially, this technology can help improve operational efficiency, process re-engineering and the time needed to train employees, all of which results in cost savings.
