The CES 2016 was a fun fair of virtual reality devices. Anyone who is intrigued by virtual reality or augmented reality must have felt like he was in paradise if he had attended CES 2016.
The major contenders for them were Facebook’s oculus rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive Pre and also MIcrosft’s HoloLens.
Microsoft has tried its best to make as much developments as it could on PC . Nut after the mobile came in the concentration of people moved from PC to mobile.
Now the time has come to take a step further and focus on what could replace the mobile in future.
According to CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadela Microsoft has made a mistake in the past by thinking that the PC was the future.
It is not ready to make that mistake again by thinking that mobile could be the future of Microsoft’s technology. Perhaps it has considered HoloLens to be the future of the mobile.
Microsoft HoloLens would be very much like using a laptop not in your hands but on the bridge of nose.
Imagine seeing everything in your eyes just with the help of futuristic glasses; all your applications could become holo graphic you could interact with games on an empty coffee table.
The HoloLens was apparently taken to a developers convention in Israel. In this convention developers discussed features, advantages and the technical faults in the device.
Bruce Harris Microsoft insider mentioned that using the HoloLens would be exactly like making use of the Windows 10 Pc tied to your face.
He also said that almost any function that could be performed on a laptop could also be performed on the HoloLens, because the OS and the core functionalities would be the same.
This comes as good news to us because it would mean that we no longer have to consider this as an online only device.
We can use the content offline and any applications that work on Windows10 can also work with the HoloLens.
3D applications like games and 2D applications like Excel can both be used effectively with the HoloLens.
Microsoft will attach no wires to the device and will leave it to Bluetooth and WiFi to connect peripherals like printers or scanners to the HoloLens.
The battery backup would be 2.5 to 5.5 hours which we believe will improve in time with more developments. As of now the HoloLens developer’s edition is priced at $3000 and the consumer price is yet to be announced.
