Will be interesting to see where this goes as it is developed into an end product. Definitely has some applications for drone use. Could make for a great heads up display overlay.
Microsoft developed this new processor for the HoloLens holographic computer, a goggle-like system with a transparent lens that augments reality with holographic images visible to the wearer. It’s a bit like Google Glass and a bit like Oculus VR headgear and also something different.
Support for holographic applications will be built into Windows 10 which could help Microsoft attract developers who are just starting to build virtual-reality and augmented-reality apps for a handful of emerging hardware platforms.
