Windows 10 and Microsoft HoloLens (3 Comments) (link)
 Friday, 23-January-2015  02:13:51 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Microsoft have made some pretty big announcements at their Windows 10 event. As expected, Microsoft made a strong push toward connecting its devices more seamlessly, part of its universal apps program. Office, Outlook, and other apps all work quite similarly across devices, and Cortana is everywhere, working as a natural-language interface and personal assistant. The big surprise, however, was Microsoft’s foray into virtual reality, with its HoloLens glasses, an ambitious bid to create a system for overlaying holographic images over the real world. Windows 10 discussion continues here in the forums.

The official Microsoft HoloLens video is viewable here, and ArsTechnica share their thoughts on this new gadget in this article - and they like it. For the second time in as many months, I feel like I've taken a step into the world of science fiction—and for the second time in as many months, it's Microsoft who put me there. More coverage on Engadget.

It's an interesting move, following only a few days since Google announced they were ending Google Glass sales. Google is halting sales of its Internet-linked eyewear Glass but insisted the technology would live on in a future consumer product.
