Digital twins will lead to "a huge revolution" for designers

Digital twins, which are also known as virtual twins, are virtual counterparts to real-world objects or processes.

Existing alongside their real-world siblings, digital twins can be used to represent a physical object or its process and to monitor what is happening in the real version as a testbed to explore the impact of proposed improvements or unexpected changes.

According to Anne Asensio, this emerging technology will enable architects and designers to demonstrate the full life cycle of a product, a service or an experience.
