Microsoft continues to offer new demonstrations of its upcoming HoloLens augmented reality headset. The latest such demo was made today during the TED conference in Vancouver.
Update: A bootleg video of the talk has appeared online and is reposted below
According to Re/code:
"In a talk at the TED conference in Vancouver, HoloLens creator Alex Kipman took attendees inside the experience by placing a camera with a fish-eye lens inside a prototype device. In doing so, Kipman showed rain landing on the stage and flowers blossoming, as well as voyages to Mars and the moon. Going a step further, Kipman also held a holographic video chat with a NASA scientist who was calling from a HoloLens across the street. The two appeared side by side, with an overlay of the surface of Mars at their feet."
The video showing those new demo should be posted sometime next week. Microsoft is scheduled to start selling the first HoloLens developer units sometime in the first quarter of 2016, for the price of $3,000 each.
