MS' Oct 2015 Event HoloLens Project X-Ray



Microsoft October 2015 Event HoloLens Project X-Ray

For those of you feeling a need for a break from your reality, here is some eye candy to help tide you over.

To begin with: the official MS site for Hololens is, i. e., MS' pitch for it:
http://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-hololens/en-us

Note: this is the MS site for the USA; your mileage may vary if you live elsewhere.

MS held a demo type conference attended by a critical mass of the media/pundits/whatever in Oct, 2015; as my topic heading notes, they decided to call it "HoloLens Project X-Ray".

There is a YouTube video for PART of the proceedings at (about 5 min long):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NkoS0vNQTY

There are several other YouTube videos on the tech via the usual search words.

This particular video struck me as a glorified video game, and as par for the course for the vast majority of such games IMO violence against an onslaught of monsters.

No doubt once it's perfected it will replace sliced bread as mankind's greatest invention; none of us should expect any less from MS.

Please bear in mind MS' No 1 axiom: if you really have to ask how much it's going to cost, you can't afford it.

The sentiment you're expressing connotes to me that "resistance is futile". Having said that, has it ever crossed your mind that the senior/upper level management types at MS appear, at their core values, to have a great deal in common with the Borg? Just Saying...
