Balti Virtual’s transition from gaming technology to business applications mimics a move of the marketplace, too. Virtual reality and augmented reality may become standards in training and career education.

From Balti Virtual:

From early childhood education to highly skilled job training, the use of virtual and augmented reality are powerful ways to transfer knowledge to a range of ages.

A few of Balti Virtual’s clients include Northrop Grumman, PayPal, Stanley Black & Decker and Under Armour.

Still think that augmented reality has nothing to offer government?

Well, here are a few suggestions from Balti Virtual:

Supplementing a live view of the user’s environment with computer generated images opens the door to powerful learning and productivity applications.

Imagine a construction worker with up-to-the-second blueprints projected over their work area. Or a Fort McHenry visitor watching the Battle of Baltimore unfold around them.

AR [augmented reality] makes this possible.

Balti Virtual will be coming to MACo’s Summer Conference Tech Expo to show off the work they’ve done in AR (augmented reality), and they might even throw in some of their trademark temporary tattoos that interact with a mobile app for attendees.

Will Gee of Balti Virtual will be speaking on the panel, Headsets On: Get Ready for Virtual Reality and the Social Shake-Up, and demoing augmented reality at the Tech Expo on Wednesday August 16.
