Data Interaction Experiments in Hololens
Professor David E Rapien of the University of Cincinnati demonstrated his prototype for interacting with data using Microsoft's Hololens. Great start. Recall we experimented with this broad idea over the years. Starting with simple headsets for plant maintenance applications, then using virtual worlds, now looking at sophisticated startups like Virtualitics. We are getting closer to the real thing.
At the right the operator is interacting with the data, at the left, what he sees and manipulates. Could include just the data, or some outcome of an analytical transformation. What is the value of immersing yourself in the data? Perhaps collaborating along with other colleagues and experts, seeking to make sense of it and its alternative transformations? That is the insight we seek. Stay tuned for more.
