In only a few hours, Zühlke made it very clear to us that it is worth pursuing our ideas and, sooner or later, complementing our staff training with AR/MR/VR.
The five-member team, which is responsible for digital learning and collaboration at the building materials manufacturer Sika, was seeking ideas on how to improve the cooperation between their 17,000 employees in 97 countries and 170 factories even more in the future.
In the first section dealing with theory, Zühlke explained the development of AR, MR and VR as well as the diverse applications the technology already offers today. The Sika team’s specific needs were then discussed and, in the second practical section, the members tried out the HoloLens and HTC Vive MR/VR glasses themselves.
