Hololens used to assemble spacecraft


NASA is using Hololens to build its new spacecraft. The employees at Lockheed Martin (an American aerospace company) are using Augmented Reality for their work on Orion, the spacecraft intended to one day sit atop the powerful NASA Space Launch System. The workers can see holograms displaying models that are created through engineering design software from Scope AR. Models of parts and labels are overlaid on already assembled pieces of the spacecraft. This way, they can avoid reading thousands of pages of paper instructions. The results from this technology are prompting the organization to expand its ambitions for the headsets: one day it hopes to use them in space.
