This article introduces AR Platforms available at the Next Lab.
There are two types of platforms that you can use to access the AR technology and develop content: handheld devices such as mobile phones or Microsoft Hololens headsets. The Next Lab has several Hololens headsets available for loan through RefTab (students need to undertake a Mixed Reality Induction prior to loaning out this equipment).
These different platforms have different intended uses, as well as different limits in their compatibility and requirements. They also have different inherent functionality, advantages, disadvantages.
