• The HoloLens headset is described as "the most advanced holographic computer the world has ever seen." It's a self-contained computer, including a CPU, a GPU, and a dedicated holographic processor. The dark visor up front contains a see-through display, there's spatial sound so you can "hear" holograms behind you, and HoloLens also integrates a set of motion and environmental sensors.
  • hough still early in its development, HoloLens will be made available "in the Windows 10 timeframe" and, according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, it will be priced "for both enterprise and consumers to use it."
  • Kipman notes that Microsoft collaborated with NASA while developing the HoloLens and encourages other companies like Magic Leap and Oculus to make a start on creating their own holograms. The biggest distinguishing feature of HoloLens, though, may be its self-sufficiency: there are no wires and no need for a connection to a PC or a phone.
