Many people are currently tired of the numerous virtual meetings in the Covid era.

However, in the not-too-distant future, the use of spatial computing, haptic feedback and 360-degree cameras, could enable a person to pull up a chair and sit down to discuss a new project with a colleague in an office thousands of kilometres away.

Technology has over the years made some great contributions in the enhancement and augmentation of our world. Around the world billions of people are using spatial computing on a daily basis without even realising it or understanding how it works.

Whenever someone uses a ride-sharing app, GPS, social media location tagging, an Augmented Reality (AR) app such as Pokémon Go, or AR filters on Instagram or Snapchat, they are using spatial computing. Spatial computing is often used by researchers to track diseases, map the bottom of the ocean, and track the behaviour of species in danger of extinction. It is also used in driverless cars to ensure a safe ride.

In the report, “Top 10 Emerging Technologies of 2020,” published in November 2020 by The World Economic Forum, leading experts named spatial computing as one of the emerging technologies that have the potential to disrupt industry and society. It is seen as a novel technology that will have a significant impact on the way we live and will change our lives profoundly in the next three to five years.
