Augmented reality (AR) and the metaverse will inform several industrial design and product design trends for years to come. The implications of this tech are both exciting and terrifying. AR offers unprecedented functional utility and new avenues for self expression. Design trends are a reflection of society and the events occurring in our world. We use digital tools and connect with each other virtually more than ever. Augmented Reality and the metaverse is the next logical step in digital interaction. Regardless of whether you think this tech is good or bad, it will have a major impact on design and culture.
