FundamentalVR, a London-UK based virtual reality (VR) specialist that’s currently developing a Haptic VR Surgical Training application, has announced that Microsoft selected the company to be part of the HoloLens Readiness Program.
Joining an esteemed list of companies and institutions that include Volvo, Autodesk, Case Western Reserve University, Trimble, Audi, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and more, FundamentalVR will be collaborating with the HoloLens team in EMEA and the US, with a focus on holographic mixed reality (MR) for medical applications.
Chris Scattergood, co-founder of FundamentalVR said in a statement: “This is a big step forward for us and the culmination of a great deal of work. With the support and endorsement of the Microsoft HoloLens team, we will be launching a number of holographic initiatives over the coming months. We are particularly excited to showcase our MultiMR solution which allows up to 20 people to share a holographic experience”.
Back in October FundamentalVR was selected as one of the latest tech companies to join Mayor Sadiq Khan’s £5million GBP International Business Programme to support high-growth companies in the life sciences, technology and urban sectors. “Being selected for this program will accelerate our global growth and enable us to reach more organisations who are looking to integrate practical and revolutionary VR and mixed reality solutions, such as the latest Microsoft HoloLens, into their business,” commented Scattergood at the time.
