Build 2015 - Microsoft has kicked off its Build 2015 developers conference, where the world has gotten a deeper look at HoloLens. HoloLens, if you haven't read about it yet, is Microsoft's holographic headset, which acts as an augmented reality visor with some impressive results. Check it out:



The company has said that what you see in the video above with resizeable 'holograms' is something you can do with any Windows 10 Universal application, meaning you can pin calendars, pictures, e-mail, or even a movie to your 'wall' inside the HoloLens, and continue to work and play around it.


Once the app is there, you can overlay a hologram on top of a physical object, and make tweaks to it without having to sit back at your desk and tap away on your keyboard. The applications that will benefit from HoloLens, in my opinion, is going to be extensive. This is one of the most exciting technologies right now outside of the Oculus Rift and HTC/Valve Vive VR headsets, and most surprising of all: it has come from Microsoft.
