I feel like computing devices are becoming more personal and interactive than ever before. With the imminent release of Microsoft's HoloLens I felt that having an interface that you could relate to, as a holographic person, would be well received.
What it does
The HoloLens Assistant provides a friendly, visual way to manage interactions, tasks and events. Emails will be displayed as a page, read to you if you wish, replied to by voice, attachments displayed if requested. Personal messages from social applications like Facebook or Twitter will be handled in a similar fashion. Driving directions can be displayed on a 3D map. The assistant will walk with you, chat with you, have idle actions like sitting down and bouncing a leg, shifting slightly while standing, looking around, playing with a pen or puzzle.
How I built it
Still in progress but this will all be designed in C# and Unity C# using the HoloLens framework from Microsoft.
Challenges I ran into
Still working on it, but I need to learn a lot more about AI technology.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Reworking a Java API into native C#.
What I learned
Large projects require a lot of planning.
