Microsoft HoloLens Application Development
In 2016 Microsoft released HoloLens, an immersive mixed reality device that allows users to bring 3D digital content right into the room with them and interact with it using gestures and voice control. As one of the first developers in the UK with access to the hardware VISYONR has been building applications for the platform since September 2016.
In 2017 and beyond we are expecting to see exponential growth in the use of this technology as industry becomes increasingly global. In this decade even the smallest of businesses will often have remote teams working internationally. This requires business to make use of tools that make communication and collaboration as effective as it can possibly be. Businesses are also more likely to be looking to deliver their products and services internationally and so having the means to communicate ideas across cultural and language divides is also essential.
Augmented Reality technology can provide a way to communicate that other methods simply cannot replicate because it allows you to immerse your customers, your team and your partners into an environment where you can 'show' not 'tell'. This means ideas are more engaging and communication is far more effective than emails, phone calls or messaging. As a result fewer mistakes are made, projects are delivered faster and your team is more engaged in creating value for you and your customers.
