What will probably happen is that Apple or Google will stick it all in pair of normal looking glasses and suddenly everyone will want it. Microsoft can add yet another missed opportunity to their list.


That will be the ultimate goal, but I think for MS they are starting early to give the content creators plenty of time to get to explore it all.

The company I work for has a big R&D team working on the optics to make it possible.

HoloLens used to assist a surgery.

Could you expand on this, ie what do you mean 'product design'? 





“It’s amazing that we can combine the old and new – clay models and holograms in a way that both saves time and allows designers to experiment and iterate quickly, to dream up even more stylish and clever vehicles. Microsoft HoloLens is a powerful tool for designers as we continue to reimagine vehicles and mobility experiences in fast changing times.”

— Moray Callum, vice president, Design



In their early work in grille theme development, they proved that what used to take days with multiple physical models could take only hours using a HoloLens and one physical model.

I'm surprised nobody has posted about this already. HoloLens 2 has been announced with double the field of view, and a $3500 price tag. Though they say it isn't for consumers at the moment, just industrial use. It has some (what I think) is really cool tech to produce the images...

Worth bearing in mind that the only thing the military industrial complex loves more than war is spending billions on technology projects that go nowhere. 




Full steam ahead with our Tom Clancy future.
