Case Study Summaries:
- Case Western Reserve University — This is a presentation of their work with Cleveland Clinic (to develop a holographic medical anatomy curriculum) at Microsoft’s Build conference in 2016. Anyone with a HoloLens-compatible system can download & experience a free HoloLens app called HoloAnatomy from the Microsoft Store that demonstrates their exploration.
- Volvo/HoloLens — First known design/mfr use of Microsoft’s “mixed reality” technology. It’s not hard to feel concerned about the adoption rate of this technology after this Verge review of Volvo/MS pilot took place in 2015 & there’s not a plethora of followers.
