Check out Halo 5: Guardians streaming to a virtual screen via HoloLens

Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft is now letting HoloLens developers show off some of the possibilities of the headset with short Twitter clips. Now one developer, Varun Mani, has given us a taste of what Xbox One game streaming is like with a demonstration of Halo 5: Guardians.

In the short clip above, you can see Mani begin a the game on his television before pausing and turning around to start playing the game on a virtual screen floating in the room. The whole video is sort of fascinating to watch, and it shows off the potential of game streaming anywhere in your home with the headset.

Of course, as cool as game streaming to a virtual screen is, it'll be even more interesting to see what sorts of dedicated augmented reality games end up being made for the headset. From what we've seen of the Minecraft demo, along with some of the applications demonstrated already on Twitter, it seems that gaming has an interesting future on HoloLens.

Check out the video above, and be sure to give us your thoughts in the comments below!
