XR technology is developing rapidly. Today, millions of people use AR and VR as they go about their daily lives. While many of the most popular use cases of AR and VR are still in the realm of gaming and entertainment, other industries are finding useful use cases in their sector.
Developments are increasing the long-term reality from the innovation of technologies to the development of information through advanced technologies and accessible systems. In October, technology giants NVIDIA and Autodesk announced the official launch of NVIDIA CloudXR and Autodesk VRED on Amazon Web Services (AWS), a cloud-based platform for users to run their choice of applications and programs.
The NVIDIA-Autodesk joint release is available as a “Quick Start” installation on AWS. Almost every user can use Autodesk VRED with the powerful NVIDIA CloudXR. Integrating a collaborative environment of manipulation and design of highly immersive XR experiences in the cloud accelerates the design processes of business enterprises. In addition, it supports long-term virtual reality environments, accelerating the evolution of XR technologies.
Inspiring the future of accessible XR technologies
The world’s first virtual reality (VR) machine was built in 1956 (and patented in 1961)—the Sensorama is a theater that integrates 3D, audio, and video with a stay tuned for a deeper insight.
Sensorama inspired the development of the world’s first VR headset in 1961. The Headsight headset was developed for military operations, complete with tracking technology. In 1968, the world saw the creation of the first augmented reality headset. Created by Ivan Sutherland, a Harvard professor, the Sword of Damocles set the stage for creating immersive AR experiences today.

The long-term and interesting change of XR is not possible in its search: it is available for regular use. The public has not had first-hand experience in using augmented reality technologies.
The World Economic Forum says that user experience is critical to the overall success of many technologies, including XR and the metaverse. Currently, the target demographic actively engages in 2D platforms, sharing and communicating information in 2D format. Web3 developers didn’t think of a solution for users to share their immersive experience with others.
The importance of collaboration for truly immersive XR experiences
The joint decision of NVIDIA and Autodesk to introduce their technology as an “Initial Access” option on AWS is a step forward in closing the gap between real technologies and mass use. Users can leverage NVIDIA CloudXR and Autodesk VRED to create high-quality and immersive XR experiences, anytime, anywhere.
Autodesk VRED is a 3D modeling solution recognized by professionals in the design, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. VRED users design dynamic displays and interactive environments with real-time 3D assets.
NVIDIA CloudXR is based on NVIDIA RTX technology, which provides the streaming of long-term virtual reality content between different networks – in the cloud, from data centers, or from mobile data network.
Anyone can easily access these technologies through AWS Quick Start. VRED users can enhance the design and streaming of immersive XR experiences with the support of NVIDIA CloudXR with dedicated NVIDIA RTX graphics cards and virtual workstations.
Transformational Projects to Enhance XR Across Businesses
Efforts between Autodesk and NVIDIA have not come to fruition. In fact, NVIDIA has entered into partnerships with the technology and automotive industries to increase the reliability of business operations.
For example, NVIDIA has teamed up with BMW to present a digital twin of the brand’s car assembly system. This summer, NVIDIA and Autodesk teamed up with Lenovo and Varjo to bring the Porsche Mission R to life with AR and MR demos.

German company Siemens has partnered with NVIDIA to use real and metaverse technologies for manufacturing and manufacturing industries. NVIDIA Omniverse enables digital twin design and standardization of workflows in factories.
Autodesk has partnered with game developer Epic Games to streamline workflows and tools for AEC designers. In fact, XR headset maker Varjo has partnered with Autodesk VRED for AR/VR headset support and collaboration through its Reality Cloud platform.
The Autodesk University event welcomed business professionals to learn more about the CloudXR Quick Start option. The feature sessions were led by David Randle, Global Head of GTM for Spatial Computing at AWS.
