Will the office of the future fit on the tip of our nose?

One of the main benefits coming out of the 2020 annus horribilis is technology’s impact on the future of office work. Remote working could just become the norm in sectors where it is feasible. In 2019, 22% of Belgian workers were already regularly working remotely (compared to 5% in the EU). These numbers will certainly rise drastically in the (very near) future. Giants of the web, with Facebook in the lead, seem confident that tomorrow’s office will be virtual.

Will Covid-19 durably transform the way we work?

At the end of 2019, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) were still fairly niche technologies. Even in video games, immersive worlds were not succeeding in enticing the general public, despite the release of major titles dedicated to these platforms, such as Half-Life: Alyx and the hugely popular Pokemon Go. But since the explosion of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020, which could impact us for quite a while, things have been evolving. We can now expect an increase in the practical applications of AR and VR in our daily lives, on both personal and professional levels. This is exciting news — which we desperately need in these troubled times.
