Is anyone using virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) on the job?

Hi,

On the EE Tech team, we regularly see articles from companies talking about how AR/VR/XR are "revolutionizing" how work is being done. This is obviously a non-scientific poll, but I would love to know if any of the forum readers actual use these technologies on the job. And, if yes, what are you using them for?

Thanks,

Dale

Starting work in the UK in the 70s, the term ‘on the job’ had a colloquial alternate meaning – working for a US multinational, the use of the term by visiting colleagues caused much mirth to my older manager.

But I think the use of the phrase has fallen into little use these days, to be honest I can’t remember the last time someone used it, as was common the 70s.

Considering that we both speak English on both sides of the pond, it is quite humorous how many colloquial phrases have either no meaning in the other country or, as you suggest so politely, "alternate" meanings.
