HoloLens is onboard the ISS as part of Project Sidekick which is designed to aid ISS astronauts, according to NASA: Sidekick has two modes of operation. The first is “Remote Expert Mode,” which uses Skype, part of Microsoft, to allow a ground operator to see what a crew member sees, provide real-time guidance, and draw annotations into the crew member’s environment to coach him or her through a task. The second mode is “Procedure Mode,” which augments standalone procedures with animated holographic illustrations displayed on top of the objects with which the crew is interacting. We developed this functionality on a proof of concept on the Epson Moverio BT-2000.
