Microsoft HoloLens: the «start menu», the new accessory and other news about the project
A few hours ago, the network appeared new information about the holographic computer, Microsoft HoloLens, and accompanied by several videos. One video even allows you to see how organized the start screen and app list.
In addition to gestures and voice commands, the owners of the HoloLens will be able to use a Bluetooth mouse-like device that is attached to the finger and allows you to interact with different elements of the holographic interface.
Another video demonstrates the application ActionGram that allows you to record videos with the addition of various objects from the gallery HoloLens. The output is something of a mixed reality.
Finally became known to the official information relating to the safe use of HoloLens, which we can summarize in the following points:
- Glasses HoloLens is not intended for children under the age of 13;
- Can be worn with glasses and contact lenses;
- HoloLens may cause temporary discomfort: nausea, headache, disorientation, etc. (in fairness it should be noted that this warning applies to almost any existing device augmented reality);
- The first few sessions of use should be short in order to accustom the body and minimize the discomfort.
Recall that in the near future HoloLens will be available to some selected developers. As for the consumer version, is now unknown even approximate date of release. Last Friday Alex Kipman – one of the founders HoloLens stated that, despite the incredible future of the project today, given its newness and lack of apps, it is not ready to meet the needs of users.
