Explore what’s possible.

The ability of mixed reality, or Augmented Reality (AR), to blend the human element of critical thinking with the compute power of a device brings new possibilities to organizations across industries, from manufacturing to education. These are just some of the infinite possibilities available for creating serious business benefit with the Microsoft HoloLens 2.

AR allows manufacturing workers to see complex procedures animated directly on the equipment they’re using. This consistently reinforces best practices and incorporates the most up-to-date instructions in the easiest way to learn: direct demonstration. AR also enables interactive simulations, animations and 3D graphics to serve as step-by-step guides for trainees learning new equipment.

From interior design to architecture and construction, AR is helping professionals visualize their final products during the creative process. The use of AR headsets enables architects, engineers and design professionals to see exactly how their designs might look in real life — and even make virtual, on-the-spot changes.

Immersive AR training simulations use advanced technology to place soldiers in diverse operational environments, stress them physically and mentally, and bolster readiness through a grueling series of virtual scenarios. This type of training can also apply to police officers and departments looking to improve de-escalation capabilities, implement anti-racism measures and earn back the trust of communities.

Students using AR

While tablets and other smart devices have become widespread in educational institutions, educators are ramping up the student learning experience with AR. Students learning about astronomy can explore topics through a full AR-generated map of the solar system; those in a music class can use AR to see musical notes in real time as they learn to play instruments. In higher education, AR is enabling chemistry students to experiment with and create complex 3D visualizations of molecules. In healthcare, students can learn anatomy by using AR to study the human body in a 3D format.
