According to a recent report by the physicist organization network, Microsoft will launch its latest holographic glasses HoloLens in the first quarter of next year.
Holographic glasses are an augmented reality (AR) headset that some observers call “unbound wearables“, consisting of a central processing unit (CPU), graphics processing unit (GPU), and holographic graphics processor (HPU). Drive, interpret and process data from the device‘s sensing array. The introductory article in the journal Popular Science says it can do all the work independently: running all the hardware needed for any internal program. Microsoft’s definition of holographic glasses is: The first holographic computer running Windows 10 system, let you reach the holographic form in your real environment.
Although headsets are currently used primarily in the gaming arena, holographic glasses can also be used in production and design. Joseph Volpe, editor of the special edition of the Engadget website, said: “Holographic glasses are a very powerful tool in business, science and education. Whether it is Volvo or the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, They are actively experimenting with it.”
Brian Lafkin of the tech blog Gizmodo points out that the user‘s eyes play a key role when using holographic glasses. “The ‘cursor‘ is your eye. You can look around in the real room, choose the hologram in the eyepiece, and stay on the object in the middle of the field of view. To interact with the selected object, you can use your finger in front of the eyepiece. Point, drag quickly, you can also use the voice command.”
According to reports, Microsoft’s development version of holographic glasses will be launched in the first quarter of 2016, priced at about 3,000 US dollars. Microsoft is focusing on developers this time. Currently, the Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue in New York has begun to showcase, and developers can experience it in person.
