Come to Inphantry for an HTC Vive + Microsoft HoloLens Demo

Yes, we’ve all heard of these emerging experience devices like Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and HTC Vive by now, but have you actually tried them yet? 

Whether or not you went to #SXSW2016 or have been to Best Buy recently, the answer for most, is probably: No.

We received our, ‘Microsoft HoloLens: Developer Edition‘ a few weeks ago and have been playing around with holograms here in our office for a while now, but the latest/coolest thing we’ve seen integrated with HoloLens is actually this PokemonGo set up…

Pretty nifty eh? The potentials of this device are through the roof  and we’re excited to be some of the first agency people to get our hands on it. Alongside with Cramer (an agency friend of ours) we haven’t seen too much chatter here in Boston about it. It almost feels like people don’t know what to do with it yet. 

Perhaps that’s why Microsoft put it in the hands of developers, clients and agency folk alike. To see what we can come up with, instead of them trying to dictate the game.

With that in mind, we get to the good part. Inphantry is quickly becoming an ’emerging experiences agency’ here in Boston and we want you to come check out what we can do. We have an HTC Vive now and want to bring this, and Microsoft HoloLens to potential clients and agencies to kickoff some crazy 21st century thinking. Everything we do at Inphantry is centered on ‘user experience’ and we think there’s some crazy innovations to be had with both the Vive and HoloLens. And we want your help in ideating.Whether it’s for a crazy client project, or something entirely different, we want you to come to our offices, try the devices on and see what these puppies can do.  (Contact us for a drop-in:

Now, to the nitty gritty…these 21st century experiences we’re talking about are super focused on development….I.E. they’re going to take a lot of time to craft. While we see Microsoft HoloLens being applicable to just about every industry in the world, and as a mixed-reality device, there’s no doubt about it: it’s going to be expensive to use. Permanent installations might be better for use of this device.

Some of our initial thoughts on potential uses were obviously: product launches, demos, car shows, trade shows, conferences, museums, aquariums, sports arenas and maybe a few others..

Now in terms of the Vive; it’s much more game oriented. Since the announcement of SteamVR and obvious support of HTC, the Vive seems primed for the mass markets. Despite it’s need to still be connected to a PC, we see it as becoming a huge device for more than just gaming though.

Some of our initial thoughts on potential uses are activations, product launches, summits, live product launches, sports arenas and a few other ideas.

Of course Inphantry went down to SXSW this year, and everything was either about augmented reality, or virtual reality (See our last SXSW post) with a huge emphasis on everything entertainment-wise. And whether or not you’re on the AR/VR bandwagon, one thing seems for sure: it’s here to stay.

And with 2016 being the year of virtual reality, we want to get a head start and figure out what sort of crazy development ideas we can come up with and bring to clients and agencies tables.
