WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE TOP VR HARDWARE
The first untethered holographic computer, HoloLens overlays different CG elements onto the transparent screen in front of each eye to create real-looking 3D holograms. HoloLens is perfect for experiences that benefit from mixing the real world with the virtual – from seeing how a chair would look in your living room to highly empathetic social experiences such as meeting a hero or figure from the news.
HoloLens can also really read a room, from what an object is to what material it’s made from – it features 12 sensors including four environment-understanding cameras and four microphones, and includes spatial sound, gaze tracking, gesture input and voice support.
The slick headpiece is only available to developers at the moment, and has a substantial price tag of £2,700.
