Welcome to the World of Holographs: Microsoft unveils its HoloLens

Remember the holographic interface that Iron Man uses in his laboratory? You’ve probably read about holographic projection screens in glasses being studied by experts. The era of holographs is apparently here with Microsoft making a live demo of their holographic computer.

At Build, during the annual developer conference, Microsoft launched their latest creation called HoloLens headset (that works with a Windows hologram app), and developers and guests covering the demo experienced firsthand how the HoloLens works.

According to The Verge, “the HoloLens is a self-contained computer, with its own CPU and GPU and a holographic processing unit (or HPU) that tracks the environment around you, what you’re looking at, and what you’re doing with your hands.”

Watch the video below to see the incredibly amazing holographic computer by Windows.

Microsoft, as stated by Business Insider, is visualizing this state of the art gadget to be used like a normal computer or mobile phone.

Holograms could be sent from the PC over Skype to the other person who could blow the image up, shrink it, walk around it, even set it on a table and edit it. Photo and Caption: businessinsider.com.au

Microsoft is encouraging developers to start creating applications for the holographic version of Windows.


So it may be just a matter of time before everyone will be using holographic projection screens in their offices or their homes. It will be interesting to see how this technology will be put into practical use.
