If you have access to multiple devices, you can share your experience. In this lesson, learn what this means and why this is important.
HoloLens is a great tool.…It can be much better though,…if you have access to more than one device.…If you do, you can share your experience.…Now, when I say,"Share your experience",…I don't mean that two people run the same app in isolation.…By sharing, I mean you really are sharing…the virtual objects, in shared real worlds.…This means both users interact with the same objects,…and see the results of what the other is doing.…In our example, if both users look at the ball,…it appears to be in the exact same spot for the both of you.…
If one of you then taps to make it drop,…the other user will see that happening as well.…To do this, we need to talk about networking,…and coordinate systems.…To get this to work, we need both devices…to run the same app at the same time,…and then we need to synchronize positions of objects,…and the commands we give the objects.…The networking part takes care of this.…This is just a basic TCP IP-based server,…that relates all data to all devices which are connected.…The harder part is to have both HoloLenses…
Join instructors Dennis Vroegop and James Ashley for this introduction for HoloLens app development. They show you how to set up your development environment, including Unity and the HoloToolkit; how to deploy to HoloLens and the HoloLens emulator; and how to build apps that accept user input via gazes, tapping, and speech. Then discover how to use spatial mapping to detect your surroundings and analyze your environment with spatial understanding. Learn how to implement spatial sound that adds to the user's existing environment, and synchronize data to create shared experiences. Along the way, learn how it all comes together in two simple 3D apps: a visualization for enterprise business and a platform game.
