Object Theory Launches Mixed Reality Collaboration Service For Microsoft Hololens @ Build 2016

World’s first mixed reality collaboration service to help organizations design and build multi-user holographic experiences, created by Object Theory for Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Holographic; Object Theory plans to make open source contributions to HoloTookit.



• Mixed Reality Collaboration Service: Object Theory’s Mixed Reality Collaboration service helps organizations design and build multi-user holographic experiences. This collaboration service allows Microsoft HoloLens users to share 3D experiences from remote locations, enabled by life size 3D avatars. We are presenting this technology at the Microsoft Build Developer Conference in San Francisco this week.

• Working with CDM Smith: This technology was initially developed by Object Theory as part of a custom software development engagement for CDM Smith (http://cdmsmith.com), 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).


• Microsoft HoloLens Readiness Program: 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.


• Open Source Contributions for HoloLens: 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.
