Microsoft HoloLens, known under development as Project Baraboo, is a pair of mixed reality head-mounted smartglassesdeveloped and manufactured by Microsoft. HoloLens gained popularity for being one of the first computers running theWindows Holographic platform under the Windows 10 operating system.
This is mixed reality.
Mixed reality blends 3D holographic content into your physical world, giving your holograms real-world context and scale, allowing you to interact with both digital content and the world around you.
Microsoft HoloLens spans realities.
HoloLens embraces virtual reality and augmented reality to create a new reality—mixed reality. Virtual reality immerses you in a simulated world. Augmented reality overlays digital information on top of your real world. By understanding your environment, mixed reality enables holograms to look and sound like they’re part of your world.
Collaborate and communicate.
When you collaborate, it’s easier to show than to tell. Your Skype contacts can draw on their screens to place holograms over physical objects in your view.
Create what you imagine.
Shape holograms to fine‑tune a design, share ideas, and understand your creations in relation to the real world.
Visualize your work.
Go beyond what a 2D render can do by working in 3D. Make smarter decisions and prototype faster when you can inspect every vantage point.
Explore places and ideas.
See holograms from your colleague’s perspective even if she’s on the other side of the world. Explore places and ideas in the real world, seeing them inside and out.
Intrigued by the technology, right now the products is not officially launched but it can be accessed by developers in USA and Canada. Lets wait and hope for a future update.
