Build 2015 recap and discussion: Join us live on Windows Weekly later today

54

Microsoft's Build conference is wrapping up today, although most of the big news was announced on Wednesday.

Since then, some clarifications and bits of information have been trickling in. Whether it was iOS/Android app conversion tools, Continuum for Windows 10 mobile, HoloLens or new initiatives, Microsoft had a lot to share.

Do you need a recap and discussion? Tune into Windows Weekly later today at 2pm PT / 5 pm ET / 9pm GMT where Paul Thurrott (Thurrott.com), Mary Jo Foley (All Things Microsoft) and I are going to talk about all that is new, break down what it all means, and what we think.

I tried the near-finalized version of HoloLens, this is what I think

147

Late yesterday, some of us were able to try once again Microsoft's HoloLens here at Build 2015. This experience was my second time with the wearable holographic device, and 99 days since its announcement, Microsoft has made some significant strides. You can read about my January experience here.

For one, the HoloLens device we were able to use this time was the near-finalized prototype. The version we wore in January was a computer around your neck and a mishmash of hardware used for testing purposes.

Personally, I find it remarkable that this thing even exists. It truly has no wires or tether. In terms of weight, it is not light but it is far from heavy. Since it is well balanced in terms of weight distribution, wearing it on your head feels fine. My motorcycle helmet is much more cumbersome, by comparison.
