After Microsoft announced the HoloLens, many discussions arose about the device’s ability to the world of games. However, NASA today unveiled its own plans for this technology: sending two of them to the Space Station Internatcional.

Using a feature called Sidekick, the astronauts can use the Hololens to assist them in treinmaneto and procedures necessary for the station.

Several NASA engineers have tested the Hololens and Sidekick Project within the Weightless Wonder C9 NASA, where you can experience zero gravity and HoloLens to test to see if they really met properly. Check out the video below.

Different utilities

Sidekick has two modes of operation. The first is the “Remote Expert Mode” using Skype to allow someone who is on Earth can see the same as a crewmember of the season, and as a result, provide guidance in real time.

The second mode is called “Procedure Mode” which allows independent procedures with holographic illustrations that appear on top of objects with which the team can interact.

This is not the first partnership between NASA and Microsoft for use of HoloLens. In January, when the device was announced, the companies revealed a project to develop software called Onsight, in which scientists use images of Curiosity robot to explore Mars from Earth.
