Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft HoloLens

The first self-contained, holographic computer that allows you to overlay and interact with digital content in the world around you.

HoloLens overview

Transform the ways you communicate, create, and interact. HoloLens enables high-definition holograms to come to life in the real world, seamlessly integrating with the things and space around you. HoloLens is already transforming how people work, reducing the cost of operations, and opening up new areas of business, from shop floor to construction site, from warehouse to operating theatre.

Microsoft HoloLens is a fully self-contained holographic computer. With more computing power than the average laptop, HoloLens needs no wires, external cameras or connection with PC or phone. Advanced sensors capture information about the environment allowing HoloLens to see, map, and understand physical places, spaces, and things. The optical projection system generates multi-dimensional full-colour images with very low latency so you can see holograms in the real world.

HoloLens synthesises sound based on a model of the human ear, delivering a life-like experience of hearing holograms placed around you. It understands your movements, vision, and voice, enabling you to interact with content and information in the most natural way possible.

Mixed reality and the Internet of Things

The Microsoft HoloLens offers the unique ability to blend Mixed Reality with the Internet of Things (IoT). HoloLens Mixed Reality overlays the real world with digital content. The holographic overlays are seen directly within the user’s vision as they look around.

The ability to overlay holographic representations of IoT objects over those very devices as you look at them can be used to implement a much more intuitive user experience for IoT that’s superior to a screen-based dashboard control. The user can simply look at any visible IoT device and control it with holographic controls or even voice commands.
