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.
Microsoft HoloLens features see-through holographic high-definition lenses and spatial sound so you can view and hear holograms in the world around you. Complete with advanced sensors, a next-generation system on a chip, and a new Holographic Processing Unit (HPU), Microsoft HoloLens is able to run without any wires while processing terabytes of data from the sensors in real time.
By placing three-dimensional holograms in the world around you, Microsoft HoloLens provides a new view into your reality that can tell what you are looking at and understand what you are saying with your hands and voice.
Microsoft HoloLens intelligently maps the room you’re in, blending holograms with the environment around you. You can pin holograms to physical locations making your room the canvas for your holographic projects and games. Gestures are used to create, shape, and size holograms. Your eyes are used to navigate and explore and your voice can be used to communicate with apps.
One of the most promising use case scenarios for Microsoft HoloLens is for instructional purposes. Using HoloNotes in Skype, friends and colleagues can see you environment from their tablet or PC and draw instructions that appear as holograms in your world.
Support for HoloLens is built into the recently unveiled Windows 10 platform which includes a set of APIs that lets developers create holographic experiences. In Windows 10, holograms are Windows universal apps, and all Windows universal apps can also work as holograms — making it possible to place three-dimensional holograms in the physical world.
