Kenworth’s plant in Chillicothe, Ohio, U.S. has decided to use Microsoft HoloLens to train employees on at least two dozen tasks.


  • Microsoft HoloLens, known under development as Project Baraboo, is a stand-alone mixed reality holographic headset specifically designed to be used on the Windows 10 platform.

  • HoloLens allows users to experience 3D holographic images as though they are a part of their environment.

  • This level of immersion enables new forms of computing in which the user’s desktop could be the living room. You might stream Netflix on a wall or build a Minecraft castle on your coffee table, as high resolution holograms.

  • Along with its CPU and GPU the unit features a new first: a holographic processing unit (HPU) that is responsible for the processing that integrates real world and holographic data.
