1) Onboarding: getting you started
This app is designed to familiarize you with the Lynx-R1's core features, from button functionalities and the flip-up mechanism to navigating the user interface and mastering hand interactions.
- Launch the app.
- Accept the menu with the privacy notice and choose the language.
- The app familiarizes you with the Lynx-R1 headset (position and buttons), the headset’s gestures and user interface.
2) Planetarium: play with the solar system
The solar system at your fingertips. Take the sun outside of the VR orb to experience true AR. This app is designed to showcase the capabilities of mixed reality with a solar system. In addition, the app shows you how to use primary hand gestures while having fun by grabbing planets and having the possibility even to throw them. Use case: The app may be used for educational purposes to teach on the solar system.
- Launch the app. You will find yourself immersed in the solar system (VR mode).
- Grab one planet with your index + thumb and take a few steps back while grabbing.
- Upon walking away from the galaxy environment, you switch to the room in which you are (AR mode). Then you can place the planet wherever you want.
- Practice with a few more planets and have fun!
3) Marble Game: build a marble maze
Build your own maze with the Marble Game. This app is designed to showcase physics such as gravity while playing with marbles to see how they react to the different maze landscapes you design.
- Launch the app and start building.
- To build the maze, select one of the four orange elements from the menu by pinching them with your right hand. Be creative!
- To see how the marbles cross the maze, pinch with your right hand the marble and see how it travels. Experiment, improve, repeat!
4) Toy Paper Plane: throw paper planes in the air
Entertainment app to have fun in mixed reality. Throw paper planes in your room and visualize how the fly around you. Have fun!
Use case example: a simple app that showcases the power of mixed reality in real-life settings.
- Launch the app. You will see two white sticks stemming from your two hands. These sticks show you the direction of the paper planes.
- Pinch with two pingers (either on your left or right hand) and make the gesture of throwing something. You will see how a paper plane emerges from your hand.
- Keep performing the gesture and have fun seeing how the paper planes fly around!
5) Lynx Brush: draw anything

- Select your favorite color and choose between four different brush strokes from the palette on your left-hand side.
6) Heart Anatomy: training in the medical field
Discover the heart’s anatomy in 3D with the Lynx-R1. Traditional learning methods use books displaying pictures of the heart in 2D, whereas our bodies are in 3D. This innovative educational app showcases a 3D visualization of the heart to help students get a better understanding of the heart’s anatomy.
- Launch the app. It will give you the possibility to select between three anatomy tests and one open exploration of the heart’s anatomy. In this tutorial, we will follow the open exploration.
- On your left palm you can find a menu that gives you the option to go back to the initial menu, or the recenter the heart’s position.
- With your right hand you can pinch with your index and thumb to move the heart. By pinching with both hands, you can scale the heart.
7) Wind Turbine: engineering design review
Discover what’s inside a wind turbine. This app features a complex CAD model (a wind turbine) that can be explored from the inside for a collaborative design review. The collaborative mode is coming soon. Use case example: engineering design reviews and industrial planning and manufacturing.
- Launch the app and position yourself close to the wind turbine.
- Stretch the wind turbine from its side by pinching simultaneously with both hands. Remove the case (yellow part) to visualize the wind turbine’s engine.
- Close the wind turbine by pinching simultaneously with both hands and bringing them towards each other. Repeat.
8) Volumetric Video: training in the medical field
Learn how to perform a professional gesture thanks to volumetric video. Volumetric video showcases a 3D scene recorded from a real-life situation. The app showcases a training dedicated to heart surgeons. The Lynx-R1 enables to visualize the 3D scene allowing medical students to repeat on-demand and at their own pace the training to perfect their skills until they feel confident and reassured. Use case example: all types of training that require very specific gestures. For example medical and military training and vocational schools.
- Upon launching the app you are able to visualize Dr. Patrick Nataf and his assistant performing three scenes for surgeons’ training.
- Upon turning your left hand, a menu appears that lets you switch scene and pause the video.
- Navigate through the different videos and perform the gestures to perfect your skills.
- Repeat until mastering the gesture and feeling confident.
9) Cultural Heritage: museum experience
Discover the historical Khayiminga temple, located in the city of Bagan in Myanmar (Burma) with Lynx-R1. Switch to VR to get fully immersed in the temple at 1:1 scale.
Use case example: visiting scale models of real-life locations to preview a trip or location.
- Upon launching the app you are able to visualize the historical Khayiminga temple.
- Toggle your left hand to see the AR/VR menu and be able to switch between AR mode and VR mode to enjoy full immersion in the temple.
10) Videosphere: museum experience
Videosphere is a 360º video viewer on the Lynx-R1. This app loads 360º videos (e.g. training or educational videos) which can be placed anywhere around the user as walkable spheres in AR. Use case example: management of a variety of immersive courses, stored on SD cards, made convenient for teachers.
- Drag & drop a 360° video from your computer to the Lynx SD card (or the embedded memory).
- Launch the app.
- On the home panel, pinch the video thumbnail to turn the 2D image into a 3D mini- sphere (this mini-sphere is the preview of the video).
- Place the mini-sphere in the room. It will automatically become a larger sphere to visualize the 360º video. Overall, you can place up to 4 spheres in your world.
- To switch the content of a sphere, simply collide the mini-sphere with the sphere you want to replace
- Use your left-hand menu to pause/play a video inside a sphere.
