D.C.-based tech consulting company announces new mixed reality services
ARLINGTON, VA — ByteCubed debuted mixed reality design services as one of the newest Microsoft Hololens Agency Partners at the 2017 Microsoft Build Conference in Seattle, WA. At the Developer conference, ByteCubed demonstrated how to envision mixed reality applications that extend analog processes and data visualization into collaborative and immersive experiences. Working at the intersection of innovative technology and strategic consulting, ByteCubed has invested in the mixed reality space as an extension of data driven analytic platforms. The Microsoft HoloLens is a self-contained mixed reality computing device that provides a unique platform for ByteCubed to create real world untethered applications started with the challenging missions of the federal government.
“At ByteCubed, we are dedicated to disrupting traditional consulting approaches found in government and industry. Mixed reality and augmented experiences are some of the most exciting technologies we see emerging today.” said Jordan Higgins, Creative Director at ByteCubed. “Working with the Microsoft HoloLens, we see tremendous potential for mixed reality to change traditional ways of working with data and each other.”
Through a comprehensive envisioning process to gain deep understanding of customer challenges, the ByteCubed team finds opportunities for augmented and virtual reality to deliver real business value and mission impact. An early adopter of the Microsoft HoloLens, ByteCubed further specializes in designing applications that uniquely blend the physical and digital worlds to create innovative, next generation experiences.
“When we first came across the HoloLens, we saw a lot of potential to change the day-to-day operations of our customers to help them visualize, analyze, and understand their data more efficiently.”
Higgins gave a Tech Talk at Build, sharing ByteCubed’s journey as newcomers to the mixed reality space to successfully graduating from the Hololens Agency Readiness Program and creating a Proof of Concept (POC) with input from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). ByteCubed’s took a traditional book of maps used to help public safety agencies plan National Special Security Events (NSSEs) and re-imagined it as a next-generation shared holographic experience. Mission planners can view geospatial map data in both tabletop and first-person views, and collaborate with each other in ways printed maps can not, keeping everyone informed with updated data and potentially reducing travel costs by allowing for remote training and planning. ByteCubed continues to explore new ways for mixed reality to transform traditional analog business processes that deliver real value to government customers.
Each year, Build brings together developers from around the world to share Microsoft’s latest announcements and news. This year’s major announcements included a new Windows 10 release, the Fall Creators Update and updates on consumer technologies, developer tools and the cloud. Mixed reality was a significant theme at the conference, highlighting Microsoft’s vision of blending physical and digital worlds into immersive experience that span augmented and virtual reality capabilities.
