Weekly AR & VR Review


Hey everyone,

I am writing this weeks review on a beautiful Saturday evening, it’s sunny and I have a box of Strongbow dark fruits chilling in the fridge.

I hope you’ve all had a great week and now you’re looking forward to a nice chilled Sunday, I haven’t checked the weather but hopefully, it will be sunny!

Let’s get started…


1.The Most Socially-Shared VR Story Of The Week

KFC has made a new training video in VR, after watching it I am not sure for what purpose it has but it is cool!















2. The Most Socially-Shared AR Story Of The Week

I have been following this story closely for the past few months and everything I read seems to point to the fact we will see this technology in a year or two!

Facebook’s new AR glasses are coming, still early days but with Apple’s AR kit making headlines, you can be sure that there will be a race to beat it.

Solid news on it all but I expect we will hear more soon.

I cannot wait to try these out!






3. Visit Mars Using VR

I have always been a fan of outer space as it’s one of the last great unknowns, I have watched almost every sci-fi movie going and my favourite is the original alien film with Sigourney Weaver, whats yours?

This new app is wicked, I have just tried it out and I found it all a bit mindblowing, awesome though!

4. Augmented Reality Glasses Aren’t The Future Cars Are

Very cool stuff indeed, apparently cars will be first to adopt AR technology, if this is true then it goes against what Apple and Facebook are currently saying, in my above article you will see that Facebook just applied for a patent for their new AR glasses.

I would love to have a car with true augmented reality, the whole fighter jet thing, I wonder how long it will be until we see this tech in everyday cars?


5. How Virtual Reality Could Help Seniors

If you read my reviews regularly you will know that I really like the fact that VR is having such a positive impact in the healthcare space, all the way from making someone’s life better or being used for pre-visualization purposes.

In this article the Samsung’s Gear VR system so seniors can experience environments and events like never before. They are able to visit obscure and fascinating places and they can even go back to their favourite places should they not physically be able to go there.



I really enjoy writing my weekly reviews, as I have always been passionate about technology and the benefits it can bring. It’s great that I can bring this passion to my day job, as head of business development for TDMB.
