Microsoft HoloLens and Autodesk Fusion 360 are helping improve collaboration across the entire product development process, enabling engineers and designers to iterate together in real-time. Faster prototyping, more confident decisions, and more efficient cooperation are the future of product design.
The interface team explored how users could collaborate together by looking at the same holographic model and being able to walk around i tand discuss various aspects of the design as i fit were really sitting on their table. They studied the possibilities of creating and editing directly from a holographic model, as well as pitching a final design to an executive team or costumer. Software rendering company Autodesk immediately sensed the possibilities of the platform for 3D engineering and industrial design.
For now, the joint ‘hololens’ and ‘fusion 360’ project is still in development, but the furure of holographic computing is likely closer than people realize. To illustrate the progress being made, microsoft created a video of the exciting possibilities.
