NASA's HoloLens Demo Puts Researchers on Mars, Space Station and Workbench

Visitor's from NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) walked on Mars, explored a 3D prototype and even dangled a rover over the audience's head during an augmented reality demo and talk at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering MakerSpace event space in Brooklyn Nov. 7. 

Matthew Clausen, creative director of JPL's Ops Lab, joined Marijke Jorritsma, an NYU graduate student and intern at JPL, to demonstrate the research and exploration capabilities of the Microsoft HoloLens, a headset that can project virtual images -- from the surface of Mars to a repair schematic -- over the real world.
