Future of the Day: Microsoft's Hololens Will Let You Fight Robots Crashing Through Your Walls
Microsoft held an imaginatively-named Windows 10 Devices event in New York Oct. 6. While they showed off some impressive new phones, a new Surface and a new Surface laptop, we were most interested in seeing new Hololens stuff.
We were super-impressed with the E3 Minecraft demo and have been salivating for more mind blowingness from the augmented reality helmet.
During today's event, they introduced Project X Ray and for the first time, let us see a wearable 'hologram'.
That's when the robots started bursting through the walls.
As with the Minecraft demo, we find this type of interactivity with the surrounding environment super fascinating.
Unfortunately, it's going to come at a price.
Microsoft set a developer kit price at $3,000, shipping in the first quarter of next year.
Time to start saving pennies.
