“We’re using a mixed reality engine to project a user interface…that’s an actual, virtual 3D caregiver that you need to be able to project into different touchscreens throughout the house.”

They are making use of Intel Realsense cameras and are now showing how the system can work on a wider range of devices including Facebook’s Portal and a Microsoft Surface Pro.   There’s more info at www.addison.care.
