Hololens expands its power, now control 2 lamps by gaze, voice and gesture (video)

On the weekend we posted a demo video by developer Morton Nielsen demonstrate controlling a bedside lamp over AllJoyn using Hololens control gestures, with the target of his gestures being identified by his gaze alone.

Now he has taken the demo to the next level, controlling 2 lamps with ease, just by looking at them.

In the video he is using is HoloLens to control AllJoyn enabled lights: LIFX 1000 and a Philips Hue+AllJoyn Bridge.

He changes the colour of the lamps and whether they are on and off by both gesture and voice, both recognized by the Hololens.

The demo illustrates what is possible if augmented reality was pervasive, but I think we would have to wait a few more years until the technology comes down a lot in price  and comfort of use.

If however you are already lucky enough to own a Hololens you can read more about his work and how to duplicate it at his website SharpGIS.net here.
