Head acoustics has announced a new application for the HoloLens 2, developed by a German start-up called HoloMetrix. The application allows users to box off an object in augmented reality before the application creates a personal sound map. This allows the user to identify sounds issues and leakages, creating a quieter environment for perhaps even more balanced room acoustics.
While augmented reality applications have been very limited up until this point in time—mainly limited to very specific mobile gaming applications or enterprise applications—this seems to be the beginning of general consumer-focused use cases with a head mounted display.
SAR Currently estimated the AR market to reach around 12 million units shipped by 2027. This is mainly due to consumer adoption once the AR glasses form factor has reached a comfortable level.
