Thoughts & Impressions
- The code for both Mixed and Virtual Reality is heavily shared. The technical limits are vastly different though since the HoloLens is completely wireless and runs off a battery. Due to this, the most difficult aspect of developing this application has been optimizing it for multiple devices.
- We initially thought the big benefit of the Mixed Reality Viewer would be the mobility (HoloLens) and ability to view medical data from anywhere like a hotel room, conference, subway, etc. After meeting with several Radiologists and Surgeons it quickly became clear that the 3D visualizations were the main draw.
- Proof of Concept has been featured on the first page of the Windows App Store and the Mixed Reality Website
