Microsoft has just announced Windows Holographic, a futuristic OS that will give consumers new ways to interact with technology, new ways to create and new ways to work and learn. Of course most exciting of all is Holographic Gaming and turning your living room into a virtual world.
Holographic computing enabled by Windows is here. Holographic APIs are enabled on all Windows 10 devices and was created from the ground up to make it easy to create universal apps for developers since the holograms themselves are Universal Windows Apps.
Windows Holographic is more than just software though. Microsoft has invented a Holographic Computer called “Microsoft HoloLens”. The first, fully untethered holographic computer. HoloLens has see-through, HD holographic lenses that allows users to see realistic holograms and even hear holograms. HoloLens comes with a build-in high-end CPU and GPU. Not just that but goes beyond that with a 3rd processor called a “Holographic Processing Unit” that will process terabytes of data all without the need for any wires.
Microsoft HoloLens enables holographic computing with no markers, no wires, no phone and no PC required.
