Just How the Hell did Microsoft Pull that off again?microsoft-HOLOLENS? What’s that?

Just a few hours after I was asking myself where Google Glass went, a new reality was borne in Seattle. I’ll spare you the drama: the good guys won.

First, some context: Microsoft haven’t released an exciting product in nearly fifteen years, and had become world-renowned one of the best technology companies in the world that actually never pose a threat to invent or create a revolutionary product. Don’t get me wrong, even early works were traced to be copies of the Apple’s Macintoch. Microsoft is in my opinion, the best technology company, but not as good as real perennial invention challengers like Apple or Samsung. It is the feeblest of the giant inventors and that is fine. Microsoft’s problem though is a matter of hubris, of not coming up with revolutionary technologies like touch technology that inevitably becomes the platform for future tech adventures. At Microsoft, people are geek, and skill-laden.

Yesterday, though, Microsoft showed the world that it finally conceded it would be outperformed for centuries, and the only way to win was to invent and not copy what others have done. They launched an incredible new product and they beat critics, and it was pure ecstasy to watch. Microsoft envisioned a world where technology could become more personal—where it could adapt to the natural ways we communicate, learn, and create, where our digital lives would seamlessly connect with real life.

The result is the world’s most advanced holographic computing platform, enabled by Windows 10. For the first time ever, Microsoft HoloLens brings high-definition holograms to life in your world, where they integrate with your physical places, spaces, and things.

Holograms will improve the way you do things every day, and enable you to do things you’ve never done before.

In all likelihood, skepticism will force some to repel this amazing tech, but in the entire world, how come wouldn’t you want to enjoy the following aspects of the Hololens?

Empowering you to achieve more:

Microsoft HoloLens puts you at the center of a world that blends holograms with reality. With the ability to design and shape holograms, you’ll have a new medium to express your creativity, a more efficient way to teach and learn, and a more effective way to visualize your work and share ideas. Your digital content and creations will be more relevant when they come to life in the world around you.

Go beyond the screen:

As holograms, your digital content will be as real as physical objects in the room. For the first time, holograms will become practical tools of daily life.

Shape holograms to fine-tune a design. Interact with them to learn something new. When you share your ideas, show and tell from multiple perspectives. Microsoft HoloLens enables you to make decisions more confidently, work more effectively, and bring your ideas to life right before your eyes.

A New Reality:

Microsoft HoloLens goes beyond augmented reality and virtual reality by enabling you to interact with three-dimensional holograms blended with your real world. Microsoft HoloLens is more than a simple heads-up display, and its transparency means you never lose sight of the world around you. High-definition holograms integrated with your real world will unlock all-new ways to create, communicate, work, and play.

A new reality

Microsoft HoloLens goes beyond augmented reality and virtual reality by enabling you to interact with three-dimensional holograms blended with your real world. Microsoft HoloLens is more than a simple heads-up display, and its transparency means you never lose sight of the world around you. High-definition holograms integrated with your real world will unlock all-new ways to create, communicate, work, and play.

Your world as a canvas

Microsoft HoloLens intelligently maps the room you’re in, blending holograms with the environment around you. Pin holograms to physical locations you choose so that your room becomes the canvas for your holographic projects and games. With Microsoft HoloLens, you can interact with holograms and everyday objects together.

New ways to collaborate and explore.

Go somewhere you’ve never been and get to know it from every angle. See holograms from your colleague’s perspective if he’s in the next room or on the other side of the world. Explore a new dimension that is grounded in, but not limited to, the physical world.

New ways to create what you imagine.

See your imagination come to life as a hologram. Effortlessly create your own holograms and share them with others. Use holograms to visualize how something will look in the physical world whether it’s a new piece of furniture in your home, a toy for your kids, or a new creation for work. HoloStudio will even let you turn your holograms into physical objects with 3D print compatibility.

Explore places you’ve never been

Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will soon be exploring Mars using holograms of Mars Rover images. They will work as if they can walk on the surface of Mars, an experience previously impossible. As a result, they will be able to learn at a faster pace than ever before.

A new way to see your world.

Holograms are the next evolution in computing. With this vision in mind, hardware, software, and user design engineers came together to create a new canvas for creators and developers. Microsoft HoloLens, together with Windows 10, introduces a powerful new holographic platform. The era of holographic computing is here

 

Microsoft just gave me a reason for a cautious optimism. Technology will never stop to evolve. We’re just seeing the start of a new era of creations and adventures, much like when the touch tech was introduced at the end of 20th century.

What if industries will never be exhaustive as pessimists often mislead themselves? Just think for a second; imagine if you could drive using your hololens to scan a the road before starting the trip, set the speed and just sleep in the back seat since your would have drove the car before hands. MICROSOFTHOLOLENS ON!!!
