Wearables on Mars
Work by NASA and Microsoft is allowing scientists and geologists to work virtually on Mars. The OnSight software, developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, processes images taken by the Curiosity Rover vehicle on Mars and makes them viewable via HoloLens, giving workers a virtual reality view of the planet. This gives researchers a firsthand view of Mars, allowing them to walk across the terrain and view rocks at different angles in a virtualized environment, meaning important real-world experiments and discoveries can be made.
