HoloLens: The Path to Mixed Reality
Microsoft HoloLens is the first fully self-contained holographic computer running Windows 10. It is completely self-contained-no wires, phones, or connection to a PC needed. Microsoft HoloLens allows you to place holograms in your physical environment and provides a new way to see your world. This session provides a mixed reality primer and an overview of the available tools & documentation to quick start your holographic application development.

The Head Mounted Tablet: Pragmatic Assisted Reality in Rugged Outdoor Scenarios
Industrial field work involves service and inspection engineers, assembly mechanics and electricians – these and many other jobs require technical field documentation, work instruction, and job reports. Information services for these workers are delivered on paper or on legacy handheld devices. These systems need the use of your hands – limiting the safety and productivity of the manual task itself.
Newer needs include remote video mentoring and visualization of data from the Industrial IoT. Immersive AR may be an eventual solution, but today’s platforms are early, fragmented, fragile and require a massive investment in content transformation. Enter the industrial head mounted tablet —a new category of wearable device that acts as the pragmatic bridge to industrial AR, solving the key problems faced by 100 million global skilled field workers in heavy industry.

ArachnoTherapy on MS Hololens
Most people deal with some kind of a fear or phobia but can’t overcome it because that’s either too hard, too expensive or just to frightening for them. What if there would be a solution to that problem? A way to treat phobias from a secure environment without ever having to put yourself in ‘danger’? That is what can be possible with Mixed Reality on the Microsoft Hololens.

Designing Augmented Reality for Education
On return to the Wearable technology show 2017, we carry out our visions and perspectives towards technology and education. In general, we have found that current learning method in education system still holds numerous issues which affect the students being obstructed to develop. Therefore, we come up with AR solutions which we believe would ease the hardship. Having devoted ourselves to the development of education system and sophisticated technology, we have been producing and delivering a range of Augmented Reality products with affordable prices, high-quality contents, and interactive features which we hope it will contribute to the long journey of decent education system for everyone. We believe that visual enhancement is one of the key to make education becomes interactive, fun, and engaging.
