Microsoft demos wearable holograms on HoloLens
Previously we've shown you how Hololand creates amazing holograms in your world.
And how those holograms can interact with the environment around you.
But today, we want to take mixed reality one step further.
So we've got something new to show you.
Holograms you can hold.
This holographic gauntlet is the weapon that Thane will be using while playing project x-ray.
You'll notice that as he moves his arm, the hologram moves as well.
This is a wearable hologram and when you combine technology like this with the environment understanding of hollow lens.
You can do some pretty spectacular things.
All right, let's battle some robots.
With Hololens you're completely untethered, which means Dan is free to move around as he shoots at enemies and avoids their fire.
WIth Hololens the action happens all around And thanks to spacial sound, you'll hear the game play as if it's happening in your room.
You'll notice that the robots know where the walls and the furniture are and it can use that knowledge to navigate and plan attacks against you.
Since each room is unique, every game is customized to you.
That thing worked, what else you got?
[SOUND] Holograms behave just like real objects.
They can interact with the environment and with each other.
For larger enemies with more powerful weapons, Dan can even use his shield to defend himself.
Nicely done, looks like that's all of them.
