This summer, Internet2 announced a contest for submissions of research and education related projects using augmented reality, with a Microsoft HoloLens going to the winning institution. The response was amazing and we received a number of really great proposal including a wifi coverage visualizer, an interactive art gallery, student recognition and lecture note prompting, and enhanced lab environments for pharmacy students. I'm glad I didn’t have to choose the best one as it was a very difficult task – many thanks to our selection committee that included Gurcharan Khanna, Executive Director of the Center for Computation & Visualization at Brown University, Amela Sadagic, Professor at the Naval Postgraduate School, and Kevin Ponto, Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
