HoloLens - outdoor and industrial use
Once you begin working with HoloLens, you quickly discover that it doesn't really work outside. There are several issues, but one rises above all - the bright light problem.
Bright and white backgrounds, such as fresh snow, make HoloLens close to unusable - holograms simply do not display against them.
Additionally, you might have developed a solid prototype for your industrial client, just to discover that it cannot be used outside your lab due to the safety regulations - HoloLens is not hard-hat compatible.
Our team has developed the solutions for hard hats and bright light. The solutions are not intrusive, and can be used with any stock HoloLens units. We have field-tested our 3D printed prototype and found that they work as expected. We are presently readying our tools for a production manufacturing run and wanted to gauge interest from other HoloLens developers.
If you've run into the same limitations and need a path forward, let us know. We hope to solicit sufficient interest to justify a manufacturing run, which can be for the benefit of the HoloLens community at large.
