More than two years later, the pandemic still shapes how we meet, live, communicate, and work. Most industries have found creative ways to adapt, yet they’re still looking to emerging technology to optimize their workflow and maintain a competitive edge in an ever-changing environment.

Paper menus are still floating around, yet some bars and restaurants have switched to QR codes. We suspect we’ll see more of this in 2023.
Want to book a high-profile guest speaker but are running into budgetary and travel constraints? ARHT Media patented its futuristic hologram technology in 2017, offering hosts and guest speakers a great solution to this conundrum.
Using ARHT technology, guest speakers don’t have to travel to make an appearance. Instead, they go to a “capture studio” and then transmit a live or recorded talk to a “HoloPresence” display that shows a life-size, three-dimensional hologram of the presenter.
Digital Photo Booths
