Since 3D design is a crucial part in the development of any augmented reality system, these 3D artists have seen a new field plenty of opportunities to develop their ideas and talents. Mobile programming, real-time optimization or computer vision algorithms play an essential role in current augmented reality systems, but 3D design is the viewable part, the “face” for costumers, the last layer of these systems. Thus, everyone can imagine how important are those 3D professionals for successful AR systems.
A few years back in time, 3D artists were mostly needed in industries like videogames, advertising and movies. Now, Augmented Reality has opened a whole new market with job oportunities and a lot of yet undiscovered creative uses. The need for 3D designers for AR is clear, and now that this new market is growing exponentially, thanks to it’s uses for marketing (and even videogames), will also create a big ammount of new jobs.
