HoloCom – An Augmented Reality Showcase for Microsoft HoloLens

March 2, 2018

The hardware hacking team of the TNG Technology Consulting GmbH just went to another – so called – Winter Retreat into the alps to work on a new prototype. This time we had access to a Microsoft HoloLens.

What if Augmented Reality glasses allowed you to communicate with friends far away as if they were in the same room? The hardware hacking team of TNG Technology Consulting has implemented a software prototype enabling such hologpraphic telepresence. Using this software it is possible to project the 3D shape of another person into your own field of view. This resembles the holograms in the “Star Wars” movies.

The Augmented Reality concept already exists since the late 1960s. Microsoft Hololens is one of the first autonomous devices that can enrich the real world with computer generated elements and so-called holograms. Within this talk we will show and explain some ideas and concepts from the field of Mixed Reality. We will present some technical details of the device and demonstrate them within live showcases. Furthermore, we will show some simple programming examples for the Hololens using Unity 3D.

For this project a very new conference talk with live demo and live coding is available.

Enjoy!

Pecha Kucha video of “See like a Terminator”

March 4, 2016

On the 4th of February we held a keynote on the topic “See like a Terminator – Augmented Reality with Oculus Rift” at the OOP conference in the International Congress Center in Munich in German language.

In the evening Martin Heider (one of the organizers of the OOP conference) staged a Pechu Kucha night where many people held a talk with 20 slides using 20 seconds for each slide. Here you can watch our Pecha Kucha about a self-built Augmented Reality wearable device based on Intel RealSense and Oculus Rift with which you can see the world through the eyes of a Terminator in English language. Of course this is a very, very short version of our original talk which has been held in many different versions already.

The talk in its original length (60 minutes) was awarded with the Oracle JavaOne Rock Star award when it was held in San Francisco in 2015.

If you want our talk “See like a Terminator – Augmented Reality with Oculus Rift” at your conference as Keynote or standard session (or something else) don’t hesitate to contact us. The talk  is available in lots of time formats and updated all the time with the newest bleeding edge technology out there e.g. Atheer Air.

The Pecha Kucha session was staged by Martin Heider and is definitely worth a visit when being at the OOP conference.

09 Mar 2016 03:00 PM – JavaLand in Brühl near Cologne
15 Mar 2016 04:40 PM – CeBIT Developer World / Hall 11, Stand D03 in Hannover

At the OOP conference in Munich on the 4th of February 2016 we will have a keynote talk from 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM about “See the world like a Terminator – Augmented Reality with Oculus Rift” as TNG Technology Consulting GmbH software consultants.

As the Keynote talk is in German language you can visit the “Pecha Kucha all night long” at OOP conference instead. It takes place on the same day, but has a different time slot. “Pecha Kucha all night long” is from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. For more information please visit the this link.

From Tuesday, the 2nd of February to Thursday, the 4th of February you can find us at the Intel booth showing bleeding edge showcases with Augmented Reality, 3D-cameras, gesture controls, IoT a.s.o. At lunch time and coffee breaks in the afternoon you can find us next to the OOP Internet café where we are showing gesture controlled drones. Visitors are also allowed to fly the drones with bare hands utilizing the Intel RealSense technology.
