The Digital Realities Centre will train people to use Microsoft HoloLens, a headset that allows users to place 3D digital models in the room alongside them, so they can use the technology to speed up learning on the job, cut costs and make critical tasks safer.
The centre has been opened next to the University of Hull by VISR, a Microsoft Mixed Reality Partner. The space is home to a one-thousand square-foot simulator that will be used for training and for businesses to work with consultants to improve how they work.
With support from the Yorkshire & Humber Institute for Technology, VISR is working with CATCH and other providers to help apprentices, students and people working in various sectors to use HoloLens.
