Hololens Augmented Arena for FTC Robotics Competition!

imageWe coach a FTC (First Technology Challenge) robotics team, team 10100 Phoenix Force in Wisconsin.

As practice is a key to success, they wanted to run the robot more often in the full 12’ x 12’ competition arena.

But, we don’t own one.

But, we DO own a Hololens.

So the team made their own Augmented Reality FTC arena!  Created it in Unity.  Watch the video of the robot running in the Augmented Arena!

The team went all the way to the State championships again this year – so super successful…  plotting already for next year!

In the future, they would like to make this available to every team – using other technologies like the Mixed Reality Viewer, etc. – then everyone with a Windows 10 PC would be able to practice with their robots.  What amazing things we will be able to do… 🙂

Watch one of their matches where they deploy the Relic out of the arena!
