Roles and Responsibilites:
Stream India is a tech event and for presenting in it, I had a week to create a few demo applications. Within the deadline, I created a Hololens app with multiple demos which can be switched using voice commands.
These demos were showcased at NZ Tech Week by our partner organization Jix. They were experienced and appreciated by Prof Mark Billinghurst, Founder HIT Lab, New Zealand.
One of the demo is a holographic A-Capella in which you can select different musical instruments to tune them in or out from a single song by selecting them. These instruments can be placed independently around the room as well.
Another demo is of a holographic car than can be exploded into its separate parts by selection or joined back. It can also be scaled up or down using voice commands.
2 other demos are holographic home appliances and furniture placement apps.They allow us to pick up and place objects in the real world to view how they would look or whether they would fit in available space before purchasing.
This is a test video of an early prototype version. In this, it can be seen that the head is approximated as a capsule and feet as cubes for physics calculations. The landscape orientation creates too much horizontal space for movement, so we went with a slightly squarish-portrait resolution using a 2 by 3 LFD screen matrix in portrait orientation. Code for bouncing the ball back from the wall edges was added to simplify the game. Also, the gravity was increased for a slightly realistic ball bouncing experience.
