The innogy Innovation Hub’s latest investment, Holo-Light, is a frontrunner in developing new solutions to merge the real with the digital world. Together with the Entrepreneurial School MCI we have invested in Holo-Light to lay the foundation for their future growth. Founded in 2015, Holo-Light has already successfully implemented numerous Mixed Reality-based projects for major customers from various industries — such as BMW, Festo, and BASF.
Cutting edge technologies like Mixed Reality (MR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are hugely important to innogy and the energy markets globally. At the innogy Innovation Hub, we are looking to enable new use cases in the energy industry where critical information such as switching systems and machine data can be displayed in AR.
AR solutions, from custom-developed software to in-house hardware
In addition to its wide variety of software products, ranging from prototype representations to quality control, training and planning, and medical applications, Holo-Light recently collaborated with the MCI's Technology & Life Sciences Departments to develop the Holo-Stylus, an input device for all head-mounted displays offering incomparable precision when interacting with 3D digital content. This revolutionary hardware device takes interacting with holograms to a new level and at the same time, with its familiar pen-like design, makes it easier for the technology to gain widespread acceptance and use. The Holo-Stylus is currently available as a development kit and should be ready for series production starting in 2019.
