What is Microsoft HoloLens?
Microsoft HoloLens is the first fully self-contained holographic computer running Windows 10. It is completely untethered–no wires, phones, or connection to a PC needed. Microsoft HoloLens allows you to place holograms in your physical environment and provides a new way to see your world.
Why would anyone use holograms?
Using holograms, you can place your digital content, such as apps, information, and even multi-dimensional videos, in the physical space around you, so you can interact with it in the same ways that you interact with physical objects.
Can the hologram co-exist with the real physical world?
Short answer; Yes. Microsoft HoloLens generates a multi-dimensional image visible to a user so that he or she perceives holographic objects in the physical world. Holographic objects seen with Microsoft HoloLens can be placed in physical locations you choose, move according to their own rules, or remain in a specific location regardless of where you are or in which direction you are looking.
Who will benefit from Microsoft HoloLens?
Microsoft believed that developers, commercial organizations, designers, and creators will find unique value in Microsoft HoloLens.
For developers, Windows 10 on Microsoft HoloLens is the premier holographic platform that enables you to help develop the future of holographic computing. Built on Windows 10, Microsoft says that HoloLens will be a revolutionary tool for businesses—transforming how companies, designers, and creators work with three-dimensional data to bring products and information to life.
In addition, Microsoft has seen increased momentum among users and their enterprise customers around our Mixed Reality efforts. You can learn more about this here.
