This demonstration showcases the improvements made to Project Esky, an open source Extended Reality (XR) software framework capable of high fidelity natural hand-interactions with virtual content. In combination with showing our temporal re-projection rendering technique in realtime, we also showcase several live desktop demonstrations, such as a virtually controlled powerpoint presentation, an e-learning example with an animated car engine, a fire simulation and a model painting application. It is our hope that the demonstrations presented will inspire others to work with Project Esky to build their own experiences, and will be a stepping stone towards bringing high-fidelity XR content to researchers and hobbyists.
