  1. Augmented Reality (AR) as a technology will improve the way we work and live in the future. The Microsoft HoloLens device allows for rendering of interactive virtual components into a real world space. The HoloLens is an augmented reality headset and can display these virtual components in front of the user’s eyes, so the data needed to complete a real-world task will always be available. The nature of a HoloLens device lends itself useful for applications in a healthcare setting. Potential benefits come from transitioning to a more hands-free environment such as allowing the logging of data while in sterilemore »environments without needing to sterilize repeatedly from touching paper or tablet. This project developed an augmented reality (AR) application to include a care plan tracker established by a patient’s doctor to allow the patient to do daily tasks without a health care worker’s supervision. The application displays the medications that the patient needs to ingest, daily tasks to complete, and health data to record. The application allows the physician to retrieve useful patient information regularly without scheduled physicals. This project sets a baseline that will provide future developers with documentation, research, and this sample application to assist in the design and construction of more complex applications in the future at the University of New Hampshire.« less
