Work in silence; let your great deeds create your power!
After a considerable period of time when Microsoft was out of a spotlight, lately the company has come around with its amazingly great innovation: Windows Holographic. It is considered to be an Augmented Reality experience that employs a headset. Likening to all VR goggles that are currently being spread across the popularity, any way these goggles are much more compact.
Microsoft’s solution adds holograms to the world around you. The Hololens headset is apparently the most advanced holographic computer the world has ever seen. That very self-contained computer includes in it CPU, a GPU and a dedicated holographic processor. Moreover, there are no wires and no possibility to connect the system to a PC or a phone. The dark visor up front contains a see-through display, there’s spatial sound so you can “hear” holograms behind you, and HoloLens also integrates a set of motion and environmental sensors.
The first demonstration and presentation of HoloLens arose huge attention and interest, because HoloLens presents a highly ambitious vision of future computing entertainment and technology.
HoloLens made it possible to Minecraft atop the landscape of your living room, take a tour of the Martian surface, or walking clients through your latest architectural masterpiece.
Alex Kipman, the man responsible for this project at Microsoft, says Windows Holographic is not so much about “putting you into virtual worlds,” which may not be for everyone, but to move beyond them, offering deeper experiences and, well, holograms!
In this endless race of technological innovations seems like Microsoft put a benchmark by challenging other companies like Oculus Rift, Magic Leap to exceed. 😉
