Discover the potential of mixed reality

Augmented reality enables users to view holographic objects in space. Mixed reality solutions take this a major step further by adding in gesture and voice control. By mixing reality with the digital world, the possibilities this produces are almost limitless - from cost reduction, to improving the efficiency of a huge variety of work processes, to creating completely new business models. Microsoft HoloLens is the first genuinely mature technology for demanding mixed reality applications and is proving to be a real game changer.

HoloLens-based mixed reality applications promise to be transformative for the manufacturing and service sectors

The potential offered by Microsoft HoloLens is colossal. For businesses, there are three major usage scenarios for mixed reality applications:

1. Optimising production
HoloLens reduces prototyping during research and development, as it enables all work phases to be carried out on a digital twin. Being able to interact with the digital twin in real space, where required with multiple users simultaneously, is set to transform working practices in this area.

2. Emotional sales
HoloLens means customers can experience products or property directly during the sales process. Compared to 2D drawings, 3D holograms deliver a vastly improved impression of buildings, major capital goods, etc. This turns a product presentation into a genuinely exciting experience.

3. Empowered workers
HoloLens enables staff such as maintenance technicians to enjoy hands-free access to technical information using gesture and voice control whilst in the process of servicing equipment. In addition, integration of applications such as Skype makes providing remote support even simpler. This makes training, education and knowledge transfer much more efficient.

Jungheinrich's Holorepair app enables its service technicians to carry out forklift and pallet truck repairs faster and more efficiently. For the Holorepair app, Zühlke has been nominated for the UX Design Award.
