Boeing is experimenting with a new system that combines drones with HoloLens technology to help firefighters combat wildfire.

As Digital Trends explains, "The drones are able to use infrared cameras and other sensors to provide a unique, real-time map of a fire’s progress, as well as the location of any teams fighting fires on the ground. Boeing then made its 2D mapping system known as INEXA Control, compatible with Microsoft’s HoloLens augmented reality headset. That allows for a 3D map that gives a bird’s-eye view of the situation and even allows for the controlling of drone paths through the software."
