Virtual Bauxprobe with Hololens
Using Microsoft Hololens AR technology, Copper Candle published a creative tool to the Microsoft Windows store that could allow a designer to place and control content on a stage using a tablet interface.
Designers would use the content library to create prototype pre-visualisations of their production and place them onto the stage or a rehearsal space for the team to plan and make decisions.
The app has evolved into a new product called XR29 which is currently under development and expands the user experience to include all VR and AR devices as well as being able to interface with theatrical control technology. This system will allow technologists with theatrical skills and experience to work with game engines and XR equipment to design and configure their experiences without needing advanced coding and game design skills.
