    Its the future . but im still waiting for a use case that makes it totally unique I think it has found one in the gaming industry but in construction VR still hasn't convinced me. maybe in training it has like driving cranes and mechanics training

    I'm thinking about getting into VR but i'm a bit confused on some things. To get true 3D I am under the impression you need to run "side by side" 3D, otherwise you are just looking at a flat image. Is this true? And if so, what headsets are capable of "true 3D"?

    soooo will these be a reality or will it just be vaporware like the other version?
    I'm getting pretty tired of things like this.
    -Oh look this the new awesome thing it can do amazing stuff and this and that
    -Yeah well can I buy it
    -No it's still in development and...
    -Well eff off then and come back when you have an item I can buy.
    And using an Ipad!!!
    It's like if Coca Cola company used Pepsi in a presentation....
    Yeah this will just be another vaporware

    Cool, but it's just going to limit human interaction more once VR becomes fully mainstream. Can't wait to see all the mental health effects when that happens. Computer -> Consoles -> "smartphones" -> VR -> what next? Seems everything is just going to go digital no matter what and possibly to the point of no return.

    I can wait to tell someone like a friend or family member that someone sent them some mail/message. So go head and put the holo lens on. Then When they put it on there will be two big hairy nuts and someone will say deez nutz got em.

    The bird was following her hand and when she went back to the browser, it stopped following her with no command of her . I don't think, this show was real. This whole hologram was controlled not only by her but by someone else as well.

    It looks "okay" but still too cumbersome. They'd need to be actual glasses size for most people to even bother using them in real life. At least this can work unlike VR which again flopped. Never get too greedy and push your crappy products when they aren't even good and consumers aren't interested and developers couldn't care less. Hopefully M$ will learn, which I doubt because they're among the most greedy bastards out there to make a quick buck of idiots.

    I predict the future. We will mix this and the Tesla suit to perfection to the point that VR and reality will be indistinguishable! Then we will all get bored after a hundred years, our planet will be on the brink of destruction, our bodies will be rendered useless so we will create a new VR! one where life is the way it used to be. We will create the ultimate simulation for mankind. We will all enter into the blank space program and look around...
    First things first...

      I think it stutters less on when you have the device on your head and move stuff around. The lag may be caused by the data being send from the headset of the presenter to the camera which may cause delay for the camera

    I thought of this 10 years ago. Complete with eye tracking, screens and I imagined being in a classroom with a teacher yet in reality your just in your room. I thought of swordfighting games and more. I combined it with what is now called the Tesla suit so that you can FEEL pressure, heat, cold, pain. I thought of it all. Ten years ago when I was 16. BUT...I don't have a lick of knowledge in the computer engineering department or graphic designer, ect. But hey...I have a good imagination lol I'm just glad my lack of knowledge hasn't hindered the world because others out there that are more capable than me thought of the same thing! Woohoo!

    great but I still think this technology is in its early stages. one of the problems I see is you can't interact with something if you don't look at it, as you can see at 9:12. she turns and leaves the bird behind. it might be a small thing but I guess people will tend to do these kinds of mistakes while multitasking and it takes away from the experience. I hope the next generation of hololenses will come with 360 degree cameras. also, it doesn't seem very responsive to me. overall I think it has many areas to improve but it will be exciting to see it happening.

    08:35 You need some better integration with haptic gloves. I would like to touch objects. I don't need a full suit; they would be too expensive. Give me at least ONE glove.

  • inyazserg Sergey Larin

    As an online tutor, I would like to use this device at my work, but it is still too big. And, no matter how transparent they advertize it, it is a problem to see your eyes. SO, I have two propositions:
    1) make it x3 smaller.
    2) make the lenses transparent. OK, more transparent. I don't care what tech you are going to use. Just make it small and let people see my eyes.
    P.S. It looks quite good already!
