It's almost a decade that we hear speaking about the impact of new technologies in our way of working and in what is called "human-augmentation"; about how our physical and mental abilities can be further enhanced through technological devices, as we have learned to do since the stone age. Though, resistance to change and other dilemmas in the organization didn't made that revolution happen since the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. As one element of remote working, many companies have accelerated to adapt the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) to ensure business continuity and in order to supplement the impossibility or extreme complication for technical teams to travel in different global sites for installation of new production lines, upgrade of existing lines, or carrying out maintenance and assistance during the pandemic. Forced by the pandemic, many companies already realized that this is not just contingent but it will last as a new way of working that improves speed and efficiency while contribute to reduce companies' carbon's foot print.
