We’ve just finished a manuscript summarising our early work with the Hololens, including data visualization and interdisciplinary work. This is a little different in flavour to our usual work, but will provide a solid foundation for more advanced work with the Hololens, including lab uses and more advanced data visualization.
Augmented Reality with Hololens: Experiential Architectures Embedded in the Real World
Paul Hockett & Tim Ingleby
Early hands-on experiences with the Microsoft Hololens augmented/mixed reality device are reported and discussed, with a general aim of exploring basic 3D visualization. A range of usage cases are tested, including data visualization and immersive data spaces, in-situ visualization of 3D models and full scale architectural form visualization. Ultimately, the Hololens is found to provide a remarkable tool for moving from traditional visualization of 3D objects on a 2D screen, to fully experiential 3D visualizations embedded in the real world.
The manuscript is currently available on Authorea, and the arxiv.
