Several of our cases, including our work for IKEA (Altitude Picking) and BD (Medical Imaging), stream video from external cameras into a HoloLens 2, giving the wearer insight into what the camera sees. Whilst designing these solutions, we quickly concluded that most off-the-shelf solutions couldn't offer what we were looking for, and landed on GStreamer,
In the past 10 years, we have been connected more than ever before. 4G became part of our everyday life and the “always-on” principle has never been more accurate. With the rise of 5G, you might wonder what more this type of connectivity can bring us? Even faster internet? Being able to process bigger amounts
With Facebook changing its name to “Meta”, the concept of Metaverse has become more popular than ever. But what is the metaverse? Is this something completely new? Or are there perhaps already many things we can label as examples of the metaverse? Even more importantly, will the Metaverse accelerate digitization, and what does this mean
Thanks to the HoloLens’ wide range of capabilities, these smartglasses can bring true added value for many industries. In this article, we focus on 5 industries where the HoloLens has already proven to boost efficiency.
Port & Shipping leverages smartglasses technology with HoloLens 2. Operators are now able to control machinery remotely, project holographic digital twins on a 1:1 scale, safely guide large cargo ships, ... and so much more!
The HoloLens helps to improve efficiency in warehouses. Order picking targets are easily met, barcodes are scanned in the blink of an eye, and computer vision technology prevents you from ever dispatching the wrong product again.
The manufacturing industry is using the HoloLens throughout their entire business - from repairing defect machinery in an instant, over training new or inexperienced employees, to simplifying the design process and even verifying whether quality standards are met.
The HoloLens facilitates your building process from A to Z, whether on site, at the office, or remotely. By visualizing your 3D BIM models (‘Building Information Models’) using the HoloLens, you can see this ‘digital twin’ at a 1:1 scale, perfectly aligned to the actual construction site.
In healthcare, the HoloLens opens the door for new possibilities on many levels. Thanks to the holographic display, this smartglasses device allows both med students and experienced healthcare professionals to better visualize and understand how the body works. Besides that during surgery, the HoloLens assists the surgeon as it visualizes all patient relevant information -
In cooperation with the medical device company Becton Dickinson (BD), the HoloLens will be used to define the application for training and educational purposes within the medical field. As part of this project, we got introduced to Dr. Tim Tollens, general and abdominal surgeon at the Imelda Hospital in Bonheiden. He quickly noticed the many
