On Monday, Microsoft had the SharePoint Conference and in the keynote they introduced SharePoint spaces.
SharePoint spaces brings Mixed Reality to the enterprise. The reason why I’m talking about this is because it shows that Microsoft is planning on utilizing the immersive headsets in the enterprise and not just in the consumer market.
SharePoint spaces will be utilizing WebVR and BabylonJS, which makes sense, because SharePoint is a website building tool. Many enterprises utilize SharePoint for their company intranet’s.

This month, the members at LearnHoloLens.com learned how to have a character sit on a virtual chair and next month they will learn how to actually have the character pick a seat in the real world and sit down.
This week, I’m showing off a demo of having an animated character spawn, pick a seat, walk to the seat, turn around and sit down in the seat.
The master class came about because a member wanted to know how to accomplish this task. It was first brought up in one of the monthly Live Q&A sessions, and then discussed a couple of times. There seemed to be enough interest in the topic that two full master classes are devoted to it.
