Object Theory Launches Mixed Reality Collaboration Service for Microsoft HoloLens

Apr 05, 2016

Object Theory announced a mixed reality collaboration service to help organizations design and build multi-user holographic experiences, for Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Holographic. This collaboration service allows Microsoft HoloLens users to share 3D experiences from remote locations, enabled by life size 3D avatars.

This technology was initially developed by Object Theory as part of a custom software development engagement for CDM Smith, which provides lasting and integrated solutions in water, environment, transportation, energy, and facilities to public and private clients worldwide. CDM Smith is an early innovator in the area of mixed reality for Virtual Design & Construction (VDC). Additionally, Object Theory was selected by Microsoft to be an agency partner in its Microsoft HoloLens Readiness Program. This program connects prospective HoloLens customers with trained solution providers, enabling them to develop great holographic content to help transform business.

Object Theory will be contributing portions of the Mixed Reality Collaboration service to Microsoft's HoloToolkit framework, an open source collection of helpful utility code for holographic development built upon the holographic Unity APIs.
