Impressive live demonstration of the HoloLens

hololens_29_april2During an event in January, we first heard about the Microsoft HoloLens. A device that projects augmented reality on top of reality, using technics like Microsoft Kinect. Augmented reality is something other than virtual reality, which is organized around you and completely replaced by digital images. Build on what we’ve got from the live demonstration of the HoloLens, is that it is very impressive. You can put apps on walls and tables, a video playback on the wall, as big as you want. “We’re discovering uses for holograms every day”, they said during the presentation.

Another point on which the HoloLens differs from many VR goggles, is that it is a completely stand-alone device with a removable battery. So you have no cables required cameras, phones or PCs.

For now you should watch the videos at the bottom of this article: the HoloLens is mind-blowing and it is hard to believe this is a real working thing. We stick with Palmer Lucky’s words : “Virtual Reality is real”, “augmented reality is the future.”

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
