Razorfish is researching ways to extend the capiblities of the Hololens using Kinect sensor

To create a common coordinate space within a physical room, Razorfish Emerging Experiences team paired the Microsoft Kinect sensor with a HoloLens and mapped the Kinect’s understanding of people and space with the anchoring system of the HoloLens.

We transform the Kinect’s output to our common coordinate system and broadcast the Kinect on a network so that multiple devices can subscribe to it. Each subscribed HoloLens shares a set of anchors that is tied to our room’s coordinate system. By using the anchor sharing service multiple HoloLens can share our common coordinate system.

Check out the result of their new system below,

When we first saw the Kinect’s data within the HoloLens we were pleasantly surprised at the dimensionality that the HoloLens is able to add and the sense of presence the Kinect’s data has within the HoloLens. Though Microsoft demoed Holoportation, this capability hasn’t been available as part of the initial SDK. By connecting the Kinect to the HoloLens it will enable us to go beyond the SDK and explore the greater freedom of interaction and gestures within the digital world that is shared by the HoloLens.
