Spatial sound adds a lot to the HoloLens experience. In this video, learn why spatial sound is so important.
- Spatial sounds is a very powerful feature…on the HoloLens.…It's also very important.…The HoloLens has a limited field of view.…It feels as if you're holding up a TV screen…at arm's length in front of you,…and this is a big downside.…Imagine you are playing a game.…In this game, there's a virtual character…standing to your left.…Now, she could be waving at you to draw your attention,…but you would never notice it, you cannot see her.…If however she makes a sound as she waves,…the natural reaction would be to look in the direction…of that sound.…
And in this case, your attention will be drawn to the left.…At that moment, you see her, and you can interact…with this character.…Everything in our world makes a sound.…And if we do the same thing in our HoloLens apps,…things will appear to be much more life like.…A car passing by makes a noise…as it drives from the right, in front of you, to the left.…This helps ground things in our virtual world.…Spacial sound also is one great feature,…it actually helps with the immersion.…
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.
