“When you change the way you see the world, you can change the world you see. “

Or so says Microsoft about their latest innovation, the Microsoft HoloLens, a holographic computing platform that is enabled by the company’s Windows 10 operating system.

The name alone sounds futuristic and the Back-to-the-Future-esque goggles promise nothing short of an augmented reality experience.


“Microsoft HoloLens goes beyond augmented reality and virtual reality by enabling you to interact with three-dimensional holograms blended with your real world. Microsoft HoloLens is more than a simple heads-up display, and its transparency means you never lose sight of the world around you. High-definition holograms integrated with your real world will unlock all-new ways to create, communicate, work, and play,” says the company on their website devoted to the new technology.

Microsoft says that HoloLens technology goes beyond a computer screen and mouse, creating a more natural way to interact. In fact, Microsoft’s latest invention actually understands your movements, vision and voice.
