Everyone expected the press event to be about Windows 10 and how it would change all of Microsoft’s other major products. Nobody thought that Microsoft would reveal a new device; a device with the potential to revolutionize technology as we know it. This device is called the Hololens and it has been in secret development for 7 years.
The Microsoft Hololens is an augmented reality-computing device. The device resembles ski goggles, with a big dark visor, and a dark band. The screen creates images that convince the wearer that all kinds of things are appearing in front of him. Like a computer, the Hololens can run several different applications. In fact it is a computer, and completely self-contained as well; it is not a kind of Bluetooth device. However, it has the potential to do so much more.
