    Modern communication lets people to talk to each other almost anywhere at any time. But using audio and video conferencing is very different than face-to-face communication. In this talk, we will show how we can use augmented reality (AR), reality capturing, and Autodesk technologies to create new types of connected design collaboration experiences that overcome limitations of traditional technology. We will share how to turn intelligent models with 3ds Max software into immersive experiences. We will show how 3D capture technology lets 3D models of people be captured and transmitted to different locations. When combined with AR displays such as Microsoft HoloLens, these technologies let users see, hear, and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they were actually present in the same physical space, and at the same time collaborate with 3D design models. This enables engineers to collaborate over distance, provides a deeper understanding of the design, and enables better-informed decisions in less time.
