Inspiration: A virtual home holographic assistant can help provide education, guidance, and step by step instructions for the care of a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC line)
*Using gaze you can identify supplies before you start a procedure. *Using spatial recognition a hologram is placed over the arm so you know where the PICC is inserted. *Using the spatial sound you always know where your holographic avatar is to ask questions at any time.
What it does: HoloHealth is a virtual holographic assistant for health care at home.
How I built it: Hololens, Unity, Cortana
Challenges I ran into: We didn't scale appropriately so ran into field of view issues.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of: upped my Unity skills with the help of awesome teammates Vinny and Nitin
What I learned: The power of collaboration and how robust the programming is
What's next for HoloHealth: shared with community
WINNER: Social Good Award at the 2016 Boston HoloHacks Event
Demo is from a first-person perspective of a caregiver wearing and using a Microsoft Hololens.
