Science fiction to science fact

Microsoft HoloLens is made of specialised components that together enable holographic computing. The optical system works in lock-step with advanced sensors. The HPU makes light work of processing a large amount of data per second. All those components and more enable you to move freely and interact with holograms.

Excellent so far

Yes I'd like to say this is the best thing since sliced bread I was actually awe struck, as there has been nothing as closer to professional/consumer augment reality daily driver as this. I can not fault its software or hardware as it is in anyway, but you can see where it needs improvement its as simple as that which I can imagine will happen very soon (eg, a larger viewing area would be ideal). PS I hope my review will not deter you I wanted to be honest, however you will not have experienced anything like this is amazing buy it try it.
