KEEP­ING IT REAL

Australian T3 - - HOT 100 -

Mi­crosoft is like an ec­cen­tric drunken old lord, spend­ing money on crazy side projects. The cra­zi­est of these is HoloLens. The bas­tard child of Ocu­lus Rift and Google Glass, this aug­mented re­al­ity head­set over­lays your view of the world with vir­tual el­e­ments, so your liv­ing room can be­come a Minecraft world, with three-di­men­sional craters in your cof­fee ta­ble and bat-filled holes in the wall. The cru­cial dif­fer­ence be­tween this and Ocu­lus Rift is that you’ll be able to ac­tu­ally see the real world, rather than feel­ing com­pletely iso­lated. $TBC, MI­CROSOFT.COM, OUT TBC
