Valorem's HoloFlight is 2017 Webby Awards Nominee
We are pleased to announce that HoloFlight, Valorem’s application for Microsoft’s HoloLens, has been selected as a nominee in the 21st Annual Webby Awards in the Mobile: Experimental & Innovation category.
HoloLens is a self-contained mixed reality headset device that allows users to engage with digital content and interact with holograms in the world around them. The HoloFlight app for HoloLens uses groundbreaking technology to visualize real flight data in 3D as holograms. Rene Schulte, a Microsoft MVP and Valorem’s Director of Immersive Experiences, led the team that designed the HoloFlight app.
HoloFlight allows users to walk around and explore various parts of the visualized space, simply gaze at airplanes to see detailed flight information or even hear ATC conversations with spatial sound. Different zoom levels allow users to choose whether to see broader views or the terrain or more detailed information of a specific airport, including the control tower’s point of view.
