Remember the days when we would wish for an object that would make things appear in front of us out of nowhere? Well, the new Microsoft HoloLens makes that possible!
It’s one of the coolest things you will experience and let us tell you upfront that it will blow you away! The HoloLens takes us into another world altogether – a world of mixed reality which merges our physical and virtual worlds together to provide us with our very own exciting canvas to play and experiment around with.
Though it was announced in 2015 and its shipping began in 2016, it’s still early days for the product and at the moment we have the ‘Development Edition’. This provides a whole range of possibilities when it comes to designers, artists and companies. It allows you to really take things to the next level and bring their ideas to life by providing ways for them to see their creations and inspect every vantage point – and if the design calls for any adjustments, you can easily make them with gestures.
Apart from that, it connects to different apps such as Skype, so that you and your contact can collaborate much more easily and visually see sketches and holograms on any physical object in your view. This results in increased productivity when it comes to your business projects and any products that the company is working on due to the fact that you are able to communicate, interact and really collaborate with clients and other project managers.
Sounds like a really cool gadget right? Well, this cool gadget comes at a really hefty price point starting at the Developer Edition for £2,719/US$3,000 and £4,529/$5,000 for the Commercial Suite Edition.
