Mixed Reality Will Soon Be in the Service of Science Labs
Perhaps the most striking feature of this mixed reality is the ability to operate other pieces of equipment in the MR platform. Donavan Alexander at Interesting Engineering shares a product that is elevating lab work to a new level. This solution takes advantage of many AR/VR/MR features such as collaboration, hands-free functioning and information overlays. Essentially, the world around the lab researcher becomes an immersive world of data with which she can interact.

The laboratory of the future will be very different. Emerging technology is radically reshaping the way we tackle daily challenges in the laboratory, opening the doors to new methods and insights, creating an incubator for potential new discoveries.
One technology that is sure to bring about a new age of innovation is the exciting realm of mixed reality.
Imagine your future laboratory. Better yet, imagine a high-tech laboratory from your favorite science fiction film. Maybe even think of that infamous scene from Minority Report.
For the initiated, mixed reality is the result of blending the physical world with the digital world. It is considered the next evolution in human, computer, and environment interaction, a place in which the world is the interface.
In short, mixed reality allows users to interact directly with their environment. Mixed reality uses a combination of augmented reality and virtual reality to control physical reality using hand gestures, voice commands, and eye movements. Scientists can manipulate a lab bench without even directly touching it.
Mixed Reality in the laboratory
The laboratory holds a special place in humanity’s history, becoming a place of discovery and lasting innovation. Mixed reality can help continue this tradition, helping to create a safe, simplistic, accountable laboratory environment. Holo4Labsis here to usher in the modern laboratory.
Your favorite director probably used some form of what they perceived as mixed reality to convey the idea of the “ laboratory of the future.”
