An explorer of extended reality
Is there a future for medical technology without extended reality (XR)? Unthinkable, says XR Senior Key Expert Anton Ebert. This versatile "cross-border commuter" roaming between diverse disciplines sees XR as a key technology that builds bridges – between the human world and digital worlds. Learn more in part five of our #Futureshaper series.
Deft looking gestures, yet seemingly without purpose: Anton Ebert's hands move through the air in focused concentration. On the face of it, there's a peculiar aesthetic to his motions that at times calls up images of tai chi, the ancient Chinese art of exercise. That is, if Anton's head weren't wrapped in a virtual reality headset.
The thing that I love the most about my job is that I can collaborate with so many individuals and different personalities all around the world.
