Hololens in the (laser) lab
I'm on week 4 of playing with the Hololens, and have just managed a first attempt at some real, practical use of the device. The demo video shows some very basic use of the Hololens in the laser lab, for instrument feed visualization and reference.
In many ways this is a somewhat lame demo, since I just used out-of-the-box tools (Remote Desktop, image pinning), but is at least a start of using Hololens for more than just playing around! If you're not familiar with ultrafast lasers, that part is also pretty cool...
In the future this application scenario should be significantly improved with a dedicated lab app. The aim is to bring in feeds from various instruments (from PCs, cameras and other networked devices) and, hopefully, some interactivity between the Hololens user and the instruments... maybe even some in-situ data visualization (see this thread).
