Optics
See-through holographic lenses (waveguides)

2 HD 16:9 light engines

Automatic pupillary distance calibration

Holographic Resolution: 2.3M total light points

Holographic Density: >2.5k radiants (light points per radian)
HoloLens has see-through holographic lenses that use an advanced optical projection system to generate multi-dimensional full-color holograms with very low latency so you can see holographic objects in your world. The key to a great holographic experience is holograms that are light point rich, i.e. have a high holographic density, and are pinned or anchored to the world around you. To achieve this, HoloLens has been designed for optimal holographic density of 2.5K radiants. The more radiants and light points there are, the brighter and richer the holograms become.

HoloLens has been tested and found to conform to the basic impact protection requirements of ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and EN 166.
Sensors
1 IMU

4 environment understanding cameras

1 depth camera

1 2MP photo / HD video camera

Mixed reality capture

4 microphones

1 ambient light sensor
HoloLens contains advanced sensors to capture information about what you’re doing and the environment you’re in. The built in cameras also enable you to record, something we call mixed reality capture (MRC), HD pictures and video of the holograms in the world around you to share with others.
Human Understanding
Spatial sound

Gaze tracking

Gesture input

Voice support
With HoloLens you can create and shape holograms with gestures, communicate with apps using your voice and navigate with a glance. HoloLens understands your gestures, gaze, and voice, enabling you to interact in the most natural way possible. With spatial sound, HoloLens synthesizes sound so you can hear holograms from anywhere in the room, even if they are behind you.
