The potential of augmented reality is often shown in science fiction films, but a new exhibit combines the genre with very real AR technology, which has a large impact.
"Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy" A new exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and the best part of the display, Worlds Reimagined, uses the HoloLens 1.
The exhibition, in part Supported by Microsoft and Audi, fans in the film worlds of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Blade Runner, Batman, Tron, Jurassic Park, Akira, Transformers and Star Wars . Overall, visitors have the opportunity to interact with 40 fictional vehicles that have been brought to life with props, images and AR.
If you can not make it to California, Microsoft has given fans a glimpse into the HoloLens portion of the exhibit through a short video (at the bottom of this page).
In the video we see the famous DeLorean time machine car from the film series Back To The Future and the war vehicle Warthog from the universe of Halo video games.
Of course we'd rather see how HoloLens 2 deals with this kind of art-technology usage in public, but since then HoloLens 1 has been around for so long can still see different compositions Those who can travel to Los Angeles have a while to see the interactive exhibition, which runs until March 15, 2020.
