Augmented Reality In Holographic Computing

We know Microsoft HoloLens has been used to mix reality and to blends holograms with the real world. Now they seem to have taken us further into the world of work and this is fascinating. As James Mackie demonstrates to us here Microsoft Office 365 is running through HoloLens to accessing Excel and Word as holograms.

Holographic computing seems unbelievable but it is here to stay. Specialized components like multiple sensors, advanced optics, and custom holographic processing enable us to go beyond the computer screen.

Microsoft HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you. The wonderful thing is a commercial suite and the development editions are fully equipped for all HoloLens developers, whether you’re working as an individual or a team. Development Edition for individual developers and commercial suites for organizations are already available.

New and Amazing Uses


University College London has taken this augmented reality to another level. Surgeons are exploring how Microsoft HoloLens can transform medical imaging, like CT scans into 3D models. Surgeons are using these 3-dimensional anatomical holograms to plan for complicated surgeries and to help patients get a clearer picture and better understanding of their own bodies.


Construction companies have started using Microsoft Hololens to visualize construction projects. This Augmented reality is finally changing the way architects design buildings enabling architecture and engineering professionals “to extend the value and investment they have made in 3D modelling”.


Products like Microsoft HoloLens, which allows people to place 3D digital models in the room alongside them, will help all students work and learn together, regardless of their background. HoloLens will become more common in the classroom.
