HoloLens video clips show how the holographic headset works from the user's perspective

Microsoft continues to promote its upcoming HoloLens augmented reality headset as the next big thing for viewing virtual content. The company quietly posted some new B-roll video showing some simulations of how people might use HoloLens, and it includes footage that shows for the first time how images from the device look from the person that's actually wearing the headset.

HoloLens POV

As shown in the above screenshot taken from the video, the HoloLens image is clear in the middle of the user's field of view. Many people who have actually tried on the headset have stated the field of view is a bit narrow, and now we can see that is indeed the case. The entire video is well worth checking out as it shows how Microsoft sees HoloLens being used in businesses like CAD design, architecture and more. Be aware that this is a B-roll video intended mostly for media outlets to use in stories, and as such lacks sound for much of its length.

Microsoft plans to begin offering HoloLens developer kits for sale to software creators sometime in the first quarter of 2016 for the price of $3,000.
