According to Irish Times, There is a scene in the iconic Tom Cruise film Minority Report where his character navigates a holographic interface using special three-fingered gloves with light sensors. Fifteen years ago, this was an impressive sci-fi vision of the future of computing but suddenly it’s looking a bit dated: “We’re now more advanced than Minority Report because Tom Cruise had to wear gloves; with HoloLens you don’t have to,” says John Savage, co-founder and technical director of Action Point, one of the earliest, if not the first, Irish technology company to begin working with Microsoft’s Augmented Reality (AR) headset.

Savage says Action Point is currently talking to number of multinationals in the manufacturing space about using HoloLens for site surveying and visualising IoT (Internet of Things) data. Action Point’s HoloLens programme would both lessen the cost of and streamline the site surveying process: “Usually a company will employ someone to walk with a very expansive laser data scanner that captures dimensions and other physical data about a site. HoloLens would replace this and help automate the process.”
