LED lighting solutions are providing new and innovative ways to light our built environment. In this session, we will explore how some of the different available technologies such as AR, VR, and XR are being used to provide a better understanding of these new lighting solutions before ever seeing them in the real world. We will also look at current technologies and tools available today and gain a better understanding of how to create and experience these new forms of digital content.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the differences between AR, VR, XR, MR, PR, and R&R
  • Understand the current hardware solutions to achieve #1
  • Understand why visual communication is a powerful tool
  • Use an object to describe the limitations of current representations of LED lighting and how newer technologies can help bridge the gap in understanding between digital and physical products
