Science fiction to science fact

Microsoft HoloLens is made of specialized 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.

Hard to get support

The HoloLens I purchased is not working with the App which has no problem on other HoloLens we purchased before this one. I tried to contact tech support to get it fixed but was transferred to 7 departments and ended up with accounting/billing department. Of course the issue was not solved at all. Very frustrated. Be very careful, there is no warranty to cover this product. You take risk.

"Starving Artist"

The cost!... I too agree $3,000 is a steep price to pay for app development. not to mention "No Refunds". I haven't done my due diligence, but I do know there are many creative individuals and teams geared up for this level of augmented reality technology and stumble onto something great. But someone as my self would find it quite hard to come up with that type of cash so in turn hinders me from grasping that reach so consider me a starving artist. ...Semajai ..DREAMstudios
