Microsoft HoloLens: Multi-Person Experience
Microsoft HoloLens, a virtual reality head-mounted display, isn’t all that traditional. Microsoft has taken an interesting prospect and could be termed under ‘mixed reality’.
At the Worldwide Partners Conference (WPC) in Toronto, Microsoft revealed an intriguing opportunity for all users: the multi-person usage experience. The VR headset does not only revolve around gaming, there is a lot more to it which means that it will have a much wider target audience.
Unlike the usual VR HDMs that clock your vision entirely and also decrease the field of view, the HoloLens allows you to enhance your visual creativity. During the conference, the company explained how almost all existing practices and software can be used with the headset.
The company also discussed a 3D modeling tool called the Maya with motorcycle teaser. This would enable architects to envisage full-size holograms of buildings and constructions. Windows & Devices Studio Manager, Dan McCulloch demonstrated the skinning of a visual creation on top of a real object.
And that is not the end; the skin of the visual creation created on a PC package can also be changed or manipulated as per the user using just hand gestures. The PC program is backed with direct data transfers.
McCulloch stated: “Using HoloLens we have shown that it can revolutionise the way people work, play, communicate, learn and create. I want to show you another example of how holograms can change the way you work and create.”
McCulloch also introduced a colleague from Barcelona which is situated at a noteworthy distance from Toronto through the hologram. With this, we believe that Asymmetrical gameplay between two players will be a whole new level. Well this is it for now folks, stay tuned for more updates.
