The moving platform feature was introduced at the start of 2022 but has already had a lot of attraction from boating companies. The employers of these companies have been giving their HoloLens headsets to their employees and connecting them to mechanical experts through Microsoft Dynamics 365 Remote Assist. This app has given boaters access to hundreds of experts across the world so they can see through a person’s HoloLens, share what they are seeing, and figure out how to solve a problem when it arises.
The moving platform feature has now given maritime workers more accessibility while they are out at sea.
This feature can now be used on big ships, but as time goes on, Microsoft is planning on refining the sensors so they can be used in even more moving spaces. Connectivity is also a big thing with virtual technology, and all kinds of ideas are being thrown around about how to make these devices more compatible with your car.
Both the Microsoft and Volkswagen teams believe that augmented reality will become an increasingly important tool for modern living, especially as more compact mixed-reality devices, like smart glasses, come out. Mixed-reality glasses will be a new wave of mixed-reality devices, right after mobile phones and computers.
Mixed-reality devices need to be applicable to most daily tasks, and we’re not too far away from this. The HoloLens 2 puts a new idea in motion for future devices, and with the HoloLens becoming so useful, it’s pushing the envelope for smaller, faster, more useable devices like smart glasses. Once augmented reality becomes more seamless and connected with mobility experiences, new technological opportunities and experiences will only continue to blossom as these technologies improve.
