What do you get when combine Quark's Holodeck and Geordie's visor? Microsoft's HoloLens of course! Gene Roddenberry once called Interactive Holographic Technology Science-Fiction, however, Microsoft calls it Science-Fact.


What is Hololens? Well, it's more than virtual reality, it's augmented reality. Rather than just observing a new world and playing within its confines, the HoloLens interacts directly with your world. Enhancing your experience, simplifying work flow and assisting with tasks. With the Microsoft HoloLens Headset you can use your eyes to point your cursor, and your hands to manipulate objects. It's a complete computer incorporated into the headset, a fully untethered experience setting your imagination, and body, free of limitations… and cubicles.


From day-to-day business, video chatting, 3D modeling, entertainment and more, the HoloLens brings forth a revolutionary way to incorporate your work into your reality.


Inside of the HoloLens you have advanced sensors that detect your surroundings and your activities, a High-Definition lense that projects full-colors images to blend with your world, and a one-of-a-kind Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) that can process large amounts of data in order to keep up with your movements and real-time needs. All of this Science-Fact power wrapped up in a shiny adjustable headband with the weight evenly distributed for comfort.




If you are a Developer, Microsoft is looking for you! First shipment of HoloLens Developer Editition goes out in the first quarter of 2016, be part of this great adventure as Microsoft continues to turn Science-Fiction into Science-Fact.
