Abstract

Mixed reality technologies has been emerging rapidly in the recent years, not only in terms of improving the equipment and software, but also in employing the current state into multiple practical applications. One of the most successful endeavours of introducing a commercial product for mixed reality is the HoloLens by Microsoft. In this paper, we describe the technology and discuss multiple practical applications among various branches of medicine, science and industry. We present the results of our desk research among various ways to employ the mixed reality into practice and discuss the new openings that arise along the development of the technology. The openings described consist of various interaction methods and applications for CSCW.
