Working with OSIsoft LLC and Microsoft, Finger Food has created an innovative holographic application for top US craft brewery, Deschutes. With HoloBridge, Finger Food brought Deschutes’ data to a new level of understanding. Drawing on Finger Food’s strengths in game design and development, user interaction and collaboration, the company created a way for Deschutes to not just see, but interact with their data at scale.
Finger Food’s Mixed Reality (MR) application features life-size holographic brewery equipment with live streaming data, offering context and insights from the PI Integrator for Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Cortana Intelligence ready to be viewed and analyzed.
The application uses a combined integration of OSIsoft’s PI System and Cortana Intelligence, which Finger Food then combined with holographic technology. The result is a framework for visualizing actionable real-time IoT driven data. Now, Deschutes can easily visualize and interact with contextually and spatially appropriate information to eliminate production time losses and increase productivity.
The HoloBridge demo was on display April 24-28 at Hannover Messe, the leading Trade Fair for Industrial Technology.
Finger Food is the first MR developer to join the RCIP, a collaboration between Microsoft and OSIsoft designed to advance Industry 4.0 initiatives.
“To remain competitive in Industry 4.0, companies need to leverage the combined power of machine learning, IoT and holographic computing,” said Finger Food CEO, Ryan Peterson. “Finger Food works across these technologies to deliver real solutions to complex business problems. For Deschutes, we created HoloBridge, a holographic framework for visualizing real-time machine learning data. Using this tool Deschutes now can see and discuss clear, accurate data and make better decisions faster to improve processes and save costs.”
“Mixed Reality will significantly impact manufacturing environments over the next decade and we’re very excited to be collaborating with Finger Food as our first Red Carpet Incubation Program MR partner,” said Prabal Acharyya, Director, Worldwide Director IoT Analytics at OSIsoft. “Not only can our clients now benefit from accurate advanced analytics to improve their processes but they can see and interact with data, context and events from the PI System in real time with PI Integrator for Microsoft Azure with MR on HoloLens from Finger Food. This is truly ground-breaking .”
“We were thrilled to have Finger Food alongside Microsoft at Hannover Messe this year,” said Caglayan Arkan, General Manager of Worldwide Manufacturing and Resources at Microsoft. “Finger Foods’ holographic application is an incredible example of how, together, we empower our customers and the outcomes they are looking to drive.”
