However, it's important to understand that uses these alternate reality spaces don't just stop at the functions of that specific hardware or software. VR has a growing presence in the engineering community. Particularly in the automotive design space, VR can be utilized to mold and sculpt models of automobiles or even interact with a final designed car to make sure the ergonomics and feel are as desired. To understand AR, VR & MR technology applications within engineering, first, we need to take a look at their capabilities.
