Interacting with virtual scenarios is becoming an important way to enhance the way we learn, carry out research and do our work.
By pushing the boundaries of computer vision and machine learning, we can interact more intuitively with holographic environments, and communicate with other people in more natural ways.
HoloLens is a wearable holographic computer that enables you to engage with holograms in the world around you. A major part of the science behind HoloLens is that it knows where it is in relation to its surroundings and the object or objects it is projecting. It does this by sensing depth and geometry.
HoloLens is a great example of how science, maths and engineering can form the basis of something hugely creative and exciting. HoloLens has the potential to greatly impact education, research and industry, by enabling interaction in virtual scenarios within real environments that would not otherwise be possible.
At this years Royal Society Summer Exhibition Microsoft Research bring to life the Magic of Mixed Reality with a hands on exhibition and delve into the science behind Hololens.
