Microsoft shows operation HoloLens




On its own Build developer conference in San Francisco, Microsoft demonstrated the operation of his holographic glasses HoloLens. The holographic glasses just runs Windows 10 with universal apps and works with Windows for internet-of-things.

In January, Microsoft announced HoloLens and some media got an early demonstration, but during Build 2015 group held a live demonstration that could see the audience through video what the user saw on stage. It showed how the user controls with gestures opened the Windows start menu, which opened as a floating screen. The user then opened Skype and dragging the window to the wall to hang virtually. On the wall beside played a video in a window, moving with the user as it ran along the wall and the window was scalable for wall-sized display.

One of the characteristics of the HoloLens is that this “holographic” images can display in 3D space. Microsoft demonstrated, inter alia, a virtual dog. The glasses should, however, not only in the living room can be used as well as in companies and educational institutions, as a demo with visual information on the human body had to prove. In addition, the HoloLens works in conjunction with the Windows 10 version for internet-of-things-applications where the group is working on. Thus, the glasses could show a virtual robot in a simple hobby robot. The robot does not have to control about sensors as HoloLens mapping the area.

Microsoft provides many more applications for the glasses and works out among others with NASA, Autodesk, Walt Disney and Unity. A release date for the HoloLens is not there yet and also the price and exact specifications are still unknown.
