Core77 Design Awards - Recognizing Excellence in Design
The Core77 Design Awards celebrate innovation, creativity, and excellence in various design categories. This year's Emerging Technologies category recognized HoloKit X as a cutting-edge solution that incorporates the use of augmented reality (AR).
In the Consumer Technology category, HoloKit X stood out as a remarkable screen-based and tech-enabled product designed for home or personal use, with a focus on providing an affordable AR copresence experience.
HoloKit X: Redefining AR Copresence in the Era of Spatial Computing
HoloKit X was born out of the desire to democratize AR and revolutionize the way we interact, learn, and collaborate in mixed reality environments.
We believed that copresence experiences should be inclusive and accessible to all. However, traditional AR headsets, like HoloLens and Magic Leap, often come with a hefty price tag, making it difficult for individuals, businesses, and educational institutions to access the full potential of AR technology. This posed a significant barrier for many to experience Mixed Reality copresence, in scenarios like multiplayer games and AR education for every students in class. Inspired by the idea that "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality," we set out to address the high costs associated with existing AR headsets.
Affordable, Immersive, and Empowering
HoloKit X offers a game-changing solution. Utilizing the power of the iPhone's hardware and software, we've crafted an affordable and immersive AR experience. Priced at just $129, HoloKit X provides a functionally equivalent alternative to expensive AR headsets. It features 6 degrees of freedom tracking, environmental perception, spatial audio, AI-powered hand tracking, and human objection detection - all designed to enhance your AR interactions.
Our team collaborated with experts in optics, human-computer interaction, and computer vision to ensure the highest quality user experience. Through extensive research, testing, and iteration, we've created a lightweight and comfortable headset that fits various head models, including adults and children.
A Shared Dream for the Reality of our Future
We are humbled and elated to have our efforts recognized by the esteemed Core77 Design Awards panel. These awards motivate us to continue pushing the boundaries of AR copresence, making it a reality for more and more people.
HoloKit X aims to bring together individuals, businesses, and educational institutions, providing a shared platform for collaboration, training, gaming, and entertainment. We believe that the power of AR technology lies in its potential to bring people together, bridge distances, and create meaningful connections.
Join Us on the Journey
As we celebrate these honors, we extend our deepest gratitude to our team, stakeholders, and most importantly, our users, for their invaluable support. Together, we will keep innovating, refining, and shaping the future of mixed reality copresence.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates, as we continue our journey to democratize AR technology and make copresence experiences accessible to everyone.
Thank you, Core77 Design Awards, for recognizing HoloKit X's potential to redefine AR copresence, and thank you to everyone who has been a part of this remarkable journey. Together, let's embrace the dream of a shared reality.
