After some logistical delays, the Microsoft Hololens has been shipped and is expected to arrive at MSU this week. The device will be housed, temporarily, in Room 205 on the Second Level of Duane G. Meyer Library, along with an Alienware Area 51 development computer. The Hololens device is a mixed-reality, wearable computer. It is designed to display interactive 3D images within a real environment. Educational and business entities are adopting the technology for many uses.
Professor Anthony Clark has been working with MSU Libraries staff to determine the best robotic option for the available funds. Professor Clark has been busy over the summer completing a paper. He is currently in Germany and expects to resume work with the library upon his return.
