The Challenge

Unlike a typical project, which has at least a general objective, for this project our team had an almost entirely open-ended assignment: discover what is and isn’t possible with the HoloLens. A fairly onerous task, even for experimentally-minded designers and developers. In spite of that open-endedness, the first steps were easy enough for the team to define. On the development front, step 1 was get up to date on the latest in HoloLens advances.

Key Learnings

One of the most interesting learnings for the team in working with this new tech, was the ways our current modes of designing and developing overlap with what we need to do going forward — and the ways they differ.

What’s Next

So where do we go from here? We’ve put the HoloLens through its paces, created a dynamic potential use case for a client, and pushed the boundaries of what the device is capable of at this point as we think through other worthwhile applications outside of this experiment. But what is the next step?
