TIME has named the HoloLens the top gadget of 2015. While not yet available, TIME still believes it is the gadget to beat in 2015, beating out some serious competition. On the list was a 16TB solid-state drive from Samsung, Google's self-driving vehicle, a DJI drone and much more. In the description, TIME states:
While much of the technology world is gaga over virtual reality, Microsoft is making a big bet in a similar-sounding but very different direction: Mixed reality. Wear the HoloLens, and holographic images will suddenly appear around your physical environment. The headset is potentially useful for professionals from surgeons to space astronauts.
Pretty cool to see HoloLens stay the center of a lot of focus and hype ahead of its release. Developer kits are expected to become available in early 2016, though they are carrying quite a hefty price tag. Are you excited for HoloLens? Let us know in the comments!
