Windows 10: Microsoft engineering team talk about creating HoloLens

Yesterday, at the Windows 10 Event, Alex Kipman unveiled a new device that no one had seen coming - Windows Holographic. A way to project technology into the real world - part hologram, part augmented reality, part science fiction.

By wearing the headset, the HoloLens, users can project virtual objects into their environment, they can use their hand to call a friend on Skype and sharing your screen literally means showing what you are looknig at - and they can interact with it.

Developed in secret on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, the Engineering and Design teams are obviously proud at creating a technology that no one had seen coming - at best projections were for a VR Headset to challenge Sony's Morpheus or Facebooks Oculus Rift - so they took the chance to talk about the process and possibilites of their new Tech.
