Hello fellow renegades, Greg here with one of the first blog post for this site.
We’ve been silent over the past two years working away on various projects and prototype. We’ve also released two small mobile games within that time which are Dragon Bite and Mine Inc.
Our social media presence has been very poor admittedly and we plan to change that within time we regular posts like this at least once a week with what we have been up to.
For 2017 we at Renegade Fortress have decided that we’re going to be to working with MR (Mixed Reality) using the HoloLens device.
What is Mixed reality? – Mixed reality is a new realm of interactivity with the virtual world, bringing virtual object to interact within the real world via a device bringing that window of the virtual world to reality. You may have seen the global phenomena of Pokémon Go in 2016 or have used the either the funky features on Snapchat using the filters. There are many more examples out there but I can only think those are the big ones that most people would be aware of.
What is the HoloLens? – “The HoloLens is the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you.” as quoted from the Microsoft HoloLens page. This device is a fantastic piece of equipment that enable you to use a version of Windows 10 and some special applications tailored versions for the device.
Being a part of developing for this technology means that we have the opportunity to create and experiment with it in hopefully new ways.
Using this technology means we have to think of new design techniques for creating various applications, since the conventional way approaching of development is very different.
We hope that you are able to follow us on this journey as we document our finding on this new step of our journey.
