Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft is letting some of its employees take home early development kits of its HoloLens augmented reality headset. Those team members are now posting short videos on Twitter that demonstrate how HoloLens might be used in the home.

One team member, Andrea Chang, showed how wearing a HoloLens headset could make it appear that a small mime is walking on a piano keyboard.

Another team member, Noble Smith, posted two HoloLens demo videos. One shows his daughter interacting with a virtual model of the solar system.

The other video shows his son viewing a 3D model of Mount Rainier, which has a rather odd looking creature floating above it.

All of these videos are designed to show how developers can quickly create applications with HoloLens via the development kit. Microsoft plans to start selling it to qualified developers in the first quarter of 2016 for $3,000.
