Microsoft Hololens is an AR headset with transparent lenses, developed by Microsoft. It uses a set of sensors and highly-developed optics to add AR content to the environment.
The Hololens also has several microphones, an HD camera, a light sensor and the ‘Holographic Processing Unit’, which is responsible for letting users interact with 3D holograms that are displayed as part of the physical world. Especially, the possibility to interact with the virtual content, enables users to have multiple options when using this technology.
For example, car makers could use the Hololens to do real-time modifications to new models. Others, more end-users related features, are watching Netflix on the wall of your room, or having a virtual pet walking around your apartment. The Hololens does all this without any wires.
