I tried Microsoft's HoloLens: It is mind blowing, but many questions remain

410

Microsoft announced yesterday many new features for Windows 10 including details on the new phone OS. However, perhaps the oddest part was in the last quarter where the word 'holograms' unexpectedly came up over and again. Of course, this was the prelude to Microsoft HoloLens, the new Windows 10 hologram powered hardware, due sometime in the near future.

The press was invited to an exclusive look at the lab and working prototypes of HoloLens, including four operating scenarios demonstrating real-world application of the helmet.

Vector Unit's water racer has always looked fantastic on mobile, whichever platform it's been on, but with the step up to the Xbox One it's never looked better.

We're looking forward to playing this. Not long left to wait.

138
