We can surely expect to see some unique ideas from developers once they get their hands on a HoloLens development kit, and French startup Opuscope is leading the way. Opuscope's main goal, as reported by FraWin.com, is to make museum visits much more interactive using both augmented and virtual reality. On the augmented reality front, Opuscope wants to use the HoloLens to dynamically display information about pieces of art as the wearer explores a particular museum.
If Opuscope is successful, it wouldn't be hard to imagine museums eschewing audio guides for augmented reality guides, whose interactive nature could help to pull in more visitors. And while Opuscope is a young startup, only having been founded in early February, it does count well-known VLC developer Thomas Nigro among its co-founders.
