augmented reality

Finding a use for Minecraft and Hololens enabled augmented reality

This isn’t exactly news now (it’s so last week) but I keep thinking about the demonstration at the E3 games expo of an augmented reality version of Minecraft via Microsoft’s upcoming Hololens tool.

Sadly from an ed design perspective – for me at least – this is a classic example of a solution looking for a problem. Working in a college of business and economics, the only immediate application for this is 3D bar graphs and pie charts. Wooo.

Still, it’s very cool.
