Tom’s Hardware Coverage: SCOPE AR’S WorkLink Goes Handsfree with HoloLens Support
Kevin Carbotte from Tom’s Hardware posted an article earlier this month on Scope AR’s Hololens Support for WorkLink. Here are a few snippets:
WorkLink works well on handheld mobile devices, and those devices are basically ubiquitous these days, but now that Microsoft’s Hololens is starting to pick up momentum, and Microsoft is jumping feet first into its Window Mixed Reality platform this year, Scope AR is ready to embrace the Hololens platform.
“Through its built-in depth camera and sophisticated tracking technology, HoloLens is one of the best wearable devices for hands-free use of the MR applications so many organizations are seeking,” said Scott Montgomerie, CEO of Scope AR. “With WorkLink now supporting the device, enterprises finally have a simple and easy way to digitize visual instructions at scale — empowering all workers to become their own expert — and begin to realize the full potential of MR.”
Montgomerie told us that porting Worklink instructions to Hololens couldn’t be simpler. Scope AR worked with Microsoft for several months to ensure that the mobile version and the Hololens version would work seamlessly together. If you have a workforce with Hololens and smartphone devices, everyone can use the same instructions to achieve the same goals. The Hololens users will simply have their hands free to work while they see the overlay.
“Enterprise-class instructional content is one of the most impactful use cases across MR today,” said Brandon Bray from Microsoft. “By providing a platform for anyone to customize their content easily for MR integration, Scope AR is making it easy for users to take advantage of the benefits of mixed reality using Microsoft HoloLens.”
