Microsoft’s mixed reality ‘Minority Report’ glasses will revolutionise lab work – and Polish firm is behind the software
A Polish company has come up with super intelligent software which, by creating hologram-style images which only be seen by the users, enables scientists to multitask in the lab.
Combing a mixture of real and virtual worlds, Holo4Labs’ Minority Report style technology transmits data digitally as the scientist works, speeding up the process of recording information.
Anna Wesołowska, Surface and HoloLens Business Group Lead at Microsoft said on the Holo4Labs website: “Digital transformation drives a constant change in a work environment.
“We live in a world of data that surrounds us and grows exponentially. More and more devices use the Internet, and the computing cloud is not a science-fiction term anymore.
“As we’ve entered the era of mixed reality, the technology enables us to use digital data in the form of holograms.”
According to Holo4Labs, the application uses both mixed reality and voice activation which lets busy lab technicians who have their hands occupied operate the software without having to stop what they are doing.
Earlier this month Holo4Labs won the Best Innovation Initiative of 2019 at the Emerging Europe Awards.
Pawel Gawkowski, chief operating officer of Holo4Labs parent company Solutions4Labs said: "By introducing mixed reality within a unique interface for the HoloLens goggles, we hope to change the way lab technicians work, no matter where in the world they're located.
“For us, this win is especially meaningful, as it helps to put Polish innovation on the map."
