At Microsoft’s Windows 10 event, the company unveiled a new VR experience for the platform, calling it the “next step” of computing. Windows Holographic is a headset you wear that makes holograms appear in real life; so it’s more of an augmented reality device.
The company showed a demo video, with potential applications of the headset such as for engineers working on projects, as a way to experience the Mars rover and more.
The device itself, named HoloLens, uses see-through lenses, spatial sound, advanced sensors, a holographic processing unit and can work entirely untethered.
Wired went hands on with the device earlier in the week so has an in-depth overview of what it can do
