Virtual, mixed and/or augmented reality are the paths that many companies have chosen to take in their digital transformation journey and in this currently digital world, there exist increasingly more alternatives for integrating them into your business, as well as a variety of glasses which provide different functionalities in order to carry out this task.
In Brintia we have established solutions with Microsoft HoloLens in different companies. This Mixed Reality device unites the virtual world with the real one, displaying holograms right infront of our eyes, it also connects us with multiple screens, Skype, and videogames..to name a few. The opportunities are infinite.
How does it work?
Unlike many other technologies of this type, they are autonomous and work with their own 3D version of Windows 10. Their constitution of four cameras, HD sensors and transparent screens offers us an easier and more real time interaction with the world around us.
Another distinguishing feature is that without the need for any other object and with only the glasses themselves, (just like with controls), the HoloLens has gesture commands, which means we are able to easily and intuitively manipulate the very virtual objects that we have around us with our own hands. You also have the ability to monitor your vision and your eyes so that interacting with this content is much simpler.
All these characteristics ensure that it is one of the key tools when deploying Mixed Reality projects for our clients. In fact, scientists at NASA have developed ProtoSpace; an application for HoloLens which allows scientists to confront potential design conflicts and test various components of the upcoming Mars 2020 Rover before making physical and final changes to it, this will help save money overtime without the need to keep replacing expensive parts if they don’t fit, for example. A holographic version of the spacecraft is projected for engineers, so they can examine the Rovers parts and view how they are arranged, as if it was real life. They can get a feeling for the size of it which is much easier to do than if it was on a computer screen. If any issues are discovered, engineers can make redesigns early on, in order to save time and resources in the long term.
HoloSurg is another example of one of the most innovative technologies available, developed for use in operating theatres. With this groundbreaking AR device surgeons can see projected images in a 3D way. It offers a range of advantages including being able to educate their patients before surgery and better understand difficult atonamy. They can see patients latest tests and a 3D model of their body, as well as view the specific part they are operating on, which makes surgeries safer and more efficient, decreases complications and increases patients life expectancy.
The Microsoft HoloLens revolution has only just begun, but here at Brintia we are already working closely with it. Do you want to learn more about what we can offer you? Don’t forget to follow us to stay up to date with all of our exciting projects!
