Azure Spatial Anchors: Building a Shared Mixed Reality across Devices (Hololens, iOS & Android)

Azure Spatial Anchors is a cross-platform developer service that allows you to create mixed reality experiences using objects that persist their location across devices over time.

This enables developers to build apps that map, designate and recall precise points of interest that are accessible across HoloLens, iOS and Android devices. It allows people in the same place to participate in multi-user mixed reality applications.

For example, two people can start a game of mixed reality chess by placing a virtual chess board on a table. Then, by pointing their device at the table, they can view and interact with the virtual chess board together. One of the people can use an iPhone while the other can use an Android device.

We'll explore the exciting new Mixed Reality world where Visual Studio + Unity makes these amazing cross-device immersive experiences the Reality possible today!

Interested in being the employee or consultant that becomes the go-to guy or gal that Enterprises look to for leading these projects? Or starting your own company working on this future focused technology?

Join Lance Larsen (Microsoft MVP) and organizer of MADdotNET (Madison's .NET User Community) in building the skills you will need for the growing global Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality Markets that are projected to reach $814.7 Billion By 2025.

Azure Kinect DK: Artificial Intelligence + Computer Vision = Your Next Generation Development Today!

Azure Kinect DK is most advanced Computer Vision device available for developers today!

Combining advanced depth sensor, spatial microphone array, video cameras with sophisticated computer vision and speech AI models, the Kinect is gives us an unparalleled tool for building cutting edge computer vision applications.

We'll specifically be diving into the Kinect's Body Tracking SDK - allowing for amazing kinematic and movement tracking. Think of the possibilities in Sports, Health and the Life Sciences fields -- as well as Games and other amazing user experiences!

Join Lance Larsen (Microsoft MVP) in looking how to start building your next computer vision application today!


Azure Spatial Anchors: Building a Shared Mixed Reality across Devices (Hololens, iOS & Android)

Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality Markets are projected to exceed $35 Billion By 2025.

One of the missing puzzle pieces in this emerging market was how to simultaneously engage multiple users across varied devices in a shared mixed reality. Azure Spatial Anchors IS that missing piece!

Azure Spatial Anchors is a cross-platform service allowing YOU to create mixed reality experiences using objects that persist at real-world locations!

So, two people can start a game of mixed reality chess by placing a virtual chess board on a table. Then, by pointing their device at the table, they can BOTH view and interact with the same virtual chess board.

We'll explore the exciting new Mixed Reality world where Visual Studio + Unity makes these amazing cross-device immersive experiences into Reality today!

Let's drink from the knowledge firehouse together and learn more together!
