While Augmented Reality enables you to view and move digital objects in real environments through your phone and Virtual Reality encapsulates you into a new virtual world, Mixed Reality is the hybrid between the two. Using the HoloLens glasses from Microsoft you can stay connected with real world, interact with digital holograms and even share your point of view with others.
Unlocking the link between people and the hybrid of digital and physical spaces, Mixed Reality is the merger of the real and virtual worlds. The technology produces new shared environments, where the physical and digital world can co-exist and interact with each other.
What’s a HoloLens and how to use it?
In simple words, the Microsoft HoloLens glasses, is a wireless pair of advanced computer glasses. Using a bunch of sensors, special optics and holographics, the glasses enable you to create digital holograms that easily co-exist with your real environment. With the HoloLens you can always share your vision (think 3D Skype), create holographic scenarios, and support your co-workers in new ways right when and where they need it. Create reusable holograms for your co-workers to watch and interact with for increased optimal support.
The best part is you can create this all by yourself. Making your own holograms is as easy as click and place. Simply upload your own content to the cloud and view it as holograms when you and your colleagues need it the most.
