Deploying hololenses for a childrens museum

My team has been contracted to develop a Hololens exhibit for a childrens science museum. We already have the idea mapped out, we're thinking that we will have vuforia markers on a table that will allow kids to create AR buildings (locked to the markers), and be able to fly spaceships around them. (using paired bluetooth xbox controllers).

My question is about the safety of the equipment: we designed this so the kids don't have to move around, so their safety is pretty much guaranteed, but even with the static design of the exhibit, do you think these hololens are robust enough to survive a kids exhibit? Is it a matter of 'if' they break, or 'when'?

Thanks so much!


  • Get insurance!!! We had a similar concern around demoing our application to people that are going to be rough and potentially break the equipment - so we elected to get special equipment insurance.
