Actiongram is the new augmented reality app to offer new experience to HoloLens users. It allows users to shoot videos of people interacting with holograms. The intention of Microsoft is to provide fun-filled experience to the HoloLens users. It is more like an “An augmented reality version of 3D Movie Maker”.
Users can select AR characters—dinosaurs, astronauts, cats, and Zombies and they can place it in the real life settings. These characters can be created anywhere in your room. You can record dialoges for them.
Though, from the quality of the augmented reality filmmaking, it seems much improvement is needed. However, it would be interesting to see which kind of imaginative apps Microsoft is able to create for the HoloLens.
As ever, technology like this needs to be more widely available before we can see its true potential. If only the HoloLens developer kit didn’t cost $3,000.
