HoloLens – Hardware Details

There are see-through holographic lenses in HoloLens, which use an advanced optical projection system in order to make multi-dimensional full-color holograms with low latency, so that you can see holographic objects in your world. HoloLens has been designed for holographic density of 2.5K radiants.

Why HoloLens?

This is actually the mixed reality which encompasses a wide range of experiences that previously were considered to be only virtual or augmented reality. In mixed reality, places, people and objects from your virtual and physical worlds merge together in a blended environment. The key aspect of mixed reality is to feel present in your environment. It enables you to interact, move naturally and explore in all three dimensions. Windows 10 will enable this experience for a variety of headsets.

Interacting with Holograms in mixed reality helps you in visualising and working with your digital content as part of your real world. Moreover, Holograms are responsive to the world around you. Microsoft enables you to interact with information and content in the most natural possible manner.

It transforms the way you create, collaborate, explore and communicate.
