MR City by Psychic VR Lab

Psychic VR Lab invited us to give us a large-scale HoloLens demo in Shinjuku street. Even in the dark environment, the holograms were very stable, smooth and beautifully designed. This was one of the coolest HoloLens demos we have ever seen. We can’t wait for other people to experience this.
