Here at eimagine we have a body of knowledge program (eBOK) that allows our staff to take on new training/learning/enrichment activities. Part of this is being able to work on new technologies we may not normally get a chance. In return we share our newly found knowledge and experiences with our peers. In this case we have a the opportunity to work with a Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition.
Microsoft started shipping out these latest advancements of wearable technology a little over 3 months ago. The HoloLens platform provides developers a great opportunity to try out developing with augmented reality and mixed reality interfaces. I was lucky enough to be included as part of the 5th wave of developers allowed to get their hands on one of these great devices. I’m coming in at good time too as the latest updates added some new features including multi-tasking and the ability to connect a Bluetooth mouse.
Below is an unboxing video of the device. I will be posting more blogs and videos about this great device as we explore and develop some projects for the Windows Holographic OS.
