Microsoft just unveiled a new wearable computer called HoloLens, a device that projects 3-D images you can interact with right in front of your eyes.
The company is calling it the first “fully untethered” holographic computer. That means it won’t need to be attached to another computer or mobile device to work properly. Most other wearable displays, such as Google Glass and the Oculus Rift, need a computer, phone, or some type of cable to work well.
The lenses are see-through, which means you’ll see something like the image shown below when looking through the glasses.
Microsoft envisioned a world where technology could become more personal—where it could adapt to the natural ways we communicate, learn, and create. Where our digital lives would seamlessly connect with real life.
The result is the world’s most advanced holographic computing platform, enabled by Windows 10. For the first time ever, Microsoft HoloLens brings high-definition holograms to life in your world, where they integrate with your physical places, spaces, and things.
Holograms will improve the way you do things every day, and enable you to do things you’ve never done before.
Virtual reality and holograms aren’t just a dream, not anymore.
