Its not about the tech. Its about celebrating the achievements of what people are doing with our tech.

The first Keynote in Toronto was an interesting one, discussing the desire to use tech to change business outcomes by engaging customers, empowering employees, optimising operations and transforming products. But the most engaging and exciting point of Satya’s talk was when he mentioned that Microsoft want to create more personal computing.

Welcome HoloLens.

HoloLens mixes real and virtual life anywhere and everywhere fully untethered and mobile – this is what Microsoft want to bring in with Windows 10.

4 Ways Microsoft HoloLens Can Bring Your Workplace into the Future

Revolutionising design and sharing ideas

HoloLens brings imagination into reality by projecting holographic, three-dimensional images into your world.

Designing and shaping holograms in this manner fosters creativity and gives you a more accurate visual representation of your ideas. In addition to visualising for yourself, this medium enables more efficient sharing and communication of your ideas with others.

Holographic representations of your ideas are also interactive, making them ideal for demonstrations and test runs.

Blending virtual reality with your world 

The goal behind HoloLens isn’t to create an all-new virtual reality but to blend the real world with interactive, three-dimensional holograms.

Its transparent display creates a realistic representation without compromising awareness of your surroundings.

In the workplace, this fosters productivity as well as collaboration. Co-workers can work more effectively on a single project and cut down on communication errors with all of the visual material literally right at their fingertips.

Improving customer support

Training and customer support becomes much more accessible with HoloLens technology.

Professionals such as automotive technicians, plumbers and electricians can especially benefit through the use of HoloLens — viewing customers’ problems through the lens and walking them through the proper techniques to solve the problems.

Technical, hands-on problems require exactly the kind of face-to-face problem-solving that this new technology allows.

Creating space-accommodating additions

Part of the brilliance of the HoloLens is the way in which it physically maps your surroundings to adjust your virtual reality accordingly.

Once the room is mapped, you can use the device to pin holograms to physical locations in the room.

Projects that involve design or other aspects of planning for a physical final result can use the room as a sort of canvas on which to work. This can also be a helpful source for organising presentations that must be confined to physical spaces.

Unlike other advanced technologies, HoloLens is intuitive and offers a natural means of interaction. There’s no mouse, wire or touch-screen.

All you need are simple gestures to create and alter holograms, your voice to communicate with apps, and your eyes to navigate and analyse. In other words, it’s an invaluable tool that will improve the way you operate without requiring extra time, effort and money in training programs.
