Microsoft Introduces the HoloLens

January 21, 2015

This is incredibly cool, to say the least. Especially if there is follow through with this idea, which Wired’s hands-on says the few scenarios they were shown worked pretty well. It’s crazy to think we are almost in the sci-fi world we have read about in so many books. If they do actually follow through, this is something that could move many individuals, including myself, from Apple to Microsoft. The sheer power and use case potential is extraordinary. But again, this is a concept video. The product could never come to fruition or it could come out flawed, laggy, and useless. Time will tell and I can’t wait.

Microsoft’s hologram glasses blew me away. HoloLens is the real deal.
