Object Theory, the world's first HoloLens company, and member of Microsoft's Mixed Reality Partner Program, announced today the release of Prism, a HoloLens collaborative experience. Also a core part of Microsoft's Alex Kipman's vision for HoloLens, Prism represents a step forward in collaborative computing since it is an avatar based holographic telepresence application.
At heart, Prism demonstrates the power of the Object Theory Mixed Reality Collaboration Service, helping organizations design and build holographic shared experiences by allowing collaboration in real time from remote locations. With Prism, four participants can participate per session via HoloLens, and a demo experience is included in the HoloLens app now on the Windows Store--- designing a modern house and planning a mountain hike on Mount Hood, Oregon’s highest peak.
Other features of the application can be seen below.
- Avatar-based holographic telepresence
- Spatial audio chat
- Shared experience supporting up to four networked users at a time
- Demo experiences – designing a house and planning a mountain hike
- Display of 3D models at tabletop and true-scale sizes
- Annotations in 3D space
