HoloGuide: an Autodesk Hackathon project

Over the last few days we’ve held Autodesk’s first internal, global Hackathon. I started off by not wanting to join a team – I did sign up as an “evangelist”, which it turns out means I’m also a judge – but in the end I decided to create a simple HoloLens application. And then Jeremy Tammik suggested we join forces, so we actually were a team, all of a sudden.

From my side I focused on creating the HoloLens application – which receives path information from somewhere and displays that to the user – as well as the 2D AutoCAD application that drives it. Jeremy created an equivalent, 3D-capable application in Revit.

Here’s the demo video I put together that describes the project.
