You might be able to see through walls with the Microsoft HoloLens
Microsoft started taking pre-orders for the Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition earlier this week. It also released a guide for making apps that will work on the augmented reality headset, and it has yielded a lot of previously unrevealed information on the HoloLens and its app.
