The Israeli army's C2 Systems Department has bought two of the Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headsets. The plan is to put them in active duty within months to help with battlefield strategy and training.
Bloomberg that Major Rotem Bashi, the commander of programing for the army's C2 Systems Department, already has some interesting ways the HoloLens could be used at war:
The HoloLens could also help medics to operate on soldiers directly on the battlefield by having instructions placed in their field of vision by trained surgeons. The same principle could be used to help soldiers repair equipment.
Officially, Microsoft will not comment on how the HoloLens could be used by military departments.
