Power Apps - Mixed Reality 3D Viewer and MR Viewer controls

In this video, I show you how Power Apps Mixed Reality works from the ground up. We will build a simple app that leverages the 3D Viewer and MR Viewer controls to display a 3D model of Star Trek's USS Endeavour. Somewhere, I also introduce the use of the Power Apps Self operator and show you how you can capture images from your Augmented Reality (AR) experience and store them in a collection

Fun and Non-Traditional uses for Power BI, Power Apps and Power Automate

In this video, I teamed up with fellow Microsoft MVPs, Belinda Allen and Daniel Christian, to show some non-traditional use cases for Power Platform. You will see examples on motion and creating motion patterns for things like the Solar System in Power Apps, cool data analysis of everything from the lottery numbers to UFO sightings to fact checking politicians in Power BI, and a showcase of Star Trek's Starfleet with using mixed reality, along with some Galaga game concepts, all in Power Apps.

 

Recorded at the Virtual Power Platform World Tour held on May 14, 2020.

#Hack4GoodMBAS 2020 Global Hackaton

This past weekend, I was privileged to participate on the 24-hour Hack4Good MBAS 2020 global hackathon, carried out prior to the Microsoft Business Applications Summit 2020.

The theme for this hackathon revolved around COVID-19 and challenged all participating teams to create innovative solutions leveraging the entire Microsoft stack to solve a single problem. The hackathon involved teams from across all continents.




From left to right and top to bottom, me, Vivek Bavishi, Jon Levesque, April Dunnam, Geetha Sivasailam, and Joe Unwin, collectively Team FlowFam.

Our use of Microsoft Power Platform, Mixed/Augmented Reality, and advanced search and location services and data storage allows this solution to be used in several settings, but we decided to build a tool that could potentially help government and city planning officials, along with military engineers to quickly locate facilities and public spaces, measure and create floor plans, quickly calculate and plan bed space requirements, and place a request for beds to fill the space.

This 5 minutes video summarizes our 24 hour effort - more to come!



Here's the announcement by the judges evaluating the #Hack4GoodMBAS hackathon solutions. Our solution, SpaceR, was selected with one other among 11 teams participating across the Americas and has been entered into a pool of world finalists (APAC, EMEA, AMER) where it will be evaluated by a team of Microsoft judges.

Winner will be announced at the next Microsoft Business Applications Summit which you can register and attend for free.

Power Platform Share with Steve, Mariano, and Belinda (Episode 7)

I caught up with fellow MVP’s Steve Endow and Belinda Allen again for our Power Platform Share and have invited a special guest, fellow MVP Reza Dorrani to present some of the latest Power Platform features and stuff he's been working on. Suffice to say Reza blew us away with his COVID-19 tracker while showing some of the new mapping and geospatial capabilities available with Power Apps.

Power Apps - Introduction to Mixed Reality

This is the first video in a 2-part series that explains some of the basic concepts behind Mixed Reality. Learn what is a model, how you can compose a model file, pack it for consumption by Power Apps and having fun while doing it all.

 

Disclaimer:

I am no mixed reality expert. This is just my personal experience trying to understand the elements and concepts behind it for the everyday citizen developer. I don't talk about Azure Mixed Reality or anything the Azure platform has to offer to developers. This is a simple "here's how you compose and pack a model for use with Power Apps Mixed Reality" video.

Power Virtual Agents - Create a Chat Bot for your on-premises ERP

This video shows how you can combine the power of Microsoft Power Virtual Agents chat bots and Power Automate flows with your on-premises data to provide an all around navigation-free user experience.

While this video features Microsoft Dynamics GP as the on-premises ERP, technically speaking, you could create a chat bot for just about any ERP system in the market, whether on-premises or in the cloud. In fact, why stop at ERPs?
