So, you ever been in a rough relationship and thought..maybe its time to break up..then suddenly something happens and bam, back in total love with the person.
Welcome to Microsoft and the consumer.

ok, so here is what it is overall
Augmented reality is like a transparent screen worn like glasses that changes, based on whatever program is running, the...world around you. the video sums it up quite nicely.

The applications are just insane to consider. every aspect of life can be effected here, from teaching and medical, to gaming, home decorating, virtual vacations, hell, you can have a virtual nightclub in your room, have your favorite singer in your bedroom singing to "you", etc.

This is going to be a major boom to the tech industry and creative designers. Time to start studying up on the code.
Wired mag discussion on it


Very excited on where this is going to go. Time to get refreshed on 3d designing for all the potential.

Good propaganda vid, but how close to the video will the product be? It seems like the video is a "this is what it will look like in 10 years" prophecy. Or am I totally wrong and showing my nontech credentials?

But in any holo environment, porn will be the Royal Flush, the checkmate, the elephant in the room. Yet the video doesn't even touch it (pun intended).

Augmented reality and 3D printing are two technologies whose eventual importance is almost impossible to overstate. Once they've come into widespread daily use we'll wonder how we lived without them in the first place.

It seems they demoed it a couple hours ago...and according to the wired article, seems pretty spot on.

I will be, oh yes, I will be focusing heavily on this industry once the specs are known and the programming language is attainable.

but for now, I am seeing just some star trek technology and drooling

I think home "themes" will be a big seller. convert your living room into say, a beachside casa, or a spaceship slowly drifting through nebulas and such. giant windows (where your plain walls are) showing off alien worlds below. the TV will become obsolete, and the computer monitor. tablets, smartphones, etc. all wiped away over time, gone the way of the paperback book.

You're seeing the future of pornography right here, folks.

No doubt
Also, with some advancements, you wont even need to leave the house to go on a date with someone across town/state/country/world. just stream your likeness to their headset (and visa versa) and voila...granted, you cant actually touch them, but still...safe encounter.

this could lead to a lot of interesting discussions. Augment your partner to look like that famous person you like..hmm

This needs to be made into a swarm of nanobots in order for the public to even consider using it ever.

No one is going to put anything on thier heads, because it looks stupid.

Thanks. To me one of the interesting points in the OP's source article pertains to how light is used in the device, and how the way we see the world is described in the first paragraph below:


Project HoloLens’ key achievement—realistic holograms—works by tricking your brain into seeing light as matter. “Ultimately, you know, you perceive the world because of light,” Kipman explains. “If I could magically turn the debugger on, we’d see photons bouncing throughout this world. Eventually they hit the back of your eyes, and through that, you reason about what the world is. You essentially hallucinate the world, or you see what your mind wants you to see."

To create Project HoloLens’ images, light particles bounce around millions of times in the so-called light engine of the device. Then the photons enter the goggles’ two lenses, where they ricochet between layers of blue, green and red glass before they reach the back of your eye. “When you get the light to be at the exact angle,” Kipman tells me, “that’s where all the magic comes in.”

yeah they release it ...then produce 30 gabillion operating systems for it in the course of a couple of years

If they cant incorporate a mobile device I cant see anyone buying it in droves.
They need to look at augmented reality applications that dont involve putting things on your body, especially your head, because people dont want to put things on over thier bodies other than thier normal clothes.



They need to partner up with other companies like emotive or develop similar technology to make it more interesting.
Replace the computer mouse, game controlers, and come up with a computer yes a computer that can fly around and project holograms over reality for you.

Really isnt such a big deal, doesnt need to be a big computer, could be a bunch of little ones that amount to the computing power of a big one. Like a swarming nanodrones which form a computer network.
What the computer swarm needs to do is "Interactive Live Holography" for all your computing needs. Everyone would love to watch movies and play games in 3d augmented reality without putting something on thier heads.

What they are trying to sell is an optical illusion type of virtual reality knock off of Oculus Rift technology.



Keep in mind putting things on your head just looks too stupid for the public to ever really accept.
If its wireless and able to work without it being on you for example on a drone that flies around you and can read your mind similar to emotives helmet but wireless it may work.

Total Recall movie comes to mind here.

Cool tech.

Your post made me wonder what the visuals or hallucinations would be like if you were actually under the influence of an hallucinogenic drug?! Or intoxicated in any way.

Too right nobody would wear them in public, but at home in private they would. Still though if everyone has them on, they wouldn't look so stupid. They need to fit over eyeglasses. I can't see without my glasses. Not into wearing contacts.

Not read the article yet. Would thry be using the rstina in the eye? The retina in one of my eyes is torn.


I wonder what the dangers are though.

If they can ever shrink it down into a contact lens that runs off your body, they'll have a winner...

I am currently flashbacking to Lieutenant Wharf's battle training on the Enterprise, and am wishing these gadgets will be able to give me some comparable HD holodeck programs. Ha, the crews of Star Trek would be jealous we need only goggles to achieve similar visual entertainment.

I am seeig a seriously disturbing trend for the human race though. Ahh oh well, at least its like hundreds of generations before the end.
