Microsoft shows off Windows 10, HoloLens, Surface Hub
Welcome to Windows Holographic.
Microsoft unveiled a new device that does away with the computer screen.
The holo lens is a wireless wearable computer that aims to spatially map the world around you, and is enabled by the new Windows 10 operating system.
Imagine turning your living room into a surreal gaming environment.
While wearing hololens, users can access Microsoft Holostudio software to design their own holograms besides hololens wasn't the only new gadget announced while Microsoft rolled out more details about Windows 10.
Microsoft surface hub is an 84 inch [UNKNOWN] display that also uses the new software and is designed to make meetings and group projects more productive.
Besides being completely touch enabled, the Microsoft Surface Hub also pairs with up to three pens simultaneously.
So users can write on the screen and collaborate.
Windows 10 is designed to seamlessly work across all devices through a program they call Continuum.
And Windows 10 will support the broadest device family ever.
It will also put Cortana, their digital personal assistant for mobile, into PCs.
Great, I'll remind you.
Microsoft is banking on these updates, plus the return of some familiar features like the Start button, to gain Windows 10 more widespread adoption after Windows 8 failed to do so.
We want to move from people needing Windows.
To choosing Windows to loving Windows.
The new software products won't be available till later this year, but we now know what Microsoft's vision of the future looks like.
