"The holographic future is upon us." - Kyle G

The first glimpse of this comes from Microsoft in the form of its HoloLens Head Mounted Display. Essentially a pair of goggles that puts digital content in the form of holograms in your real world environment. We'll be demonstrating how it is currently being used in education.

Kyle "G" is a former aerospace test engineer who started using 3D visualizations of test data and component engineering to communicate more effectively and provide more visceral education and training experiences. Today he is exploring similar opportunities using holographic display technology like Microsoft's HoloLens. http://wavelength.space (https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwavelength.space%2F&h=ATNMIoKjF6RojrV1ubWZzI8wRid8cARo9N35xjycB4y0L5vbXyZxnkWp2pi011bAQJBTBlgjcQgH0puMxhG5hHk1BfQ0A3qKUqpt_2-AZeQ3mra9Cw9FJhdw_xnZpcTqUZJD)
