Microsoft HoloLens

Trimble and Microsoft HoloLens

The next generation of AEC-O technology.  Trimble has collaborated with Microsoft to bring Microsoft HoloLens wearable holographic technology to the AEC-O industry.  This collaboration allows Trimble to explore ways to augment today’s technology with solutions that allow indiviiduals to more effectively interpret and interact with physical and digital information and their spatial relationships – transforming how architects, engineers, contractors and owner work.

Microsoft HoloLens provides a mixed-reality experience for a range of commercial and consumer applications.  For the AEC market, the HoloLens device can extend interaction with 3D models beyond the confines of a 2D computer screen, creating new ways for teams on complex projects to visualize, share ideas, and manage change.

Mixed Reality With HoloLens – Mixed reality brings people, places, and objects from your physical and digital worlds together.  This blended environment becomes your canvas, where you can create and enjoy a wide range of experiences.  Interacting with holograms in mixed reality enables you to visualize and work with your digital content as part of your real world.

A More Natural Way To Interact:

                GAZE                                         GESTURE                                       VOICE                                                                

  • Gaze – Built-in sensors let you use your gaze to move the cursor so you can select holograms.  Turn your head and the cursor will follow.
  • Gesture – Use simple gestures to open apps, select and size items, and drag and drop holograms in your world.
  • Voice – use voice commands to navigate, select, open, command, and control your apps.  Speak directly to Cortana, who can help you complete tasks.
