HoloLens

Mixed Reality Smartglasses
Microsoft

Microsoft HoloLens, the first self-contained, holographic computer, enabling you to engage with your digital content and interact with holograms in the world around you.

Mixed reality brings people, places, and objects from your physical and digital worlds together. This blended environment becomes your canvas, where you can create and enjoy a wide range of experiences.

Control your view by dragging your mouse cursor over the image or by using the following keys on your keyboard: use the A key to pan left, the D key to pan right, the W key to pan up, and the S key to pan down.

Holograms Enhance the World

Interacting with holograms in mixed reality enables you to visualize and work with your digital content as part of your real world. Realize mixed reality’s promise with Microsoft HoloLens.

Features

Gaze

Sensor-based gazing

Built-in sensors let you use your gaze to move the cursor so you can select holograms. Turn your head and the cursor will follow. Gaze input on the HoloLens indicates where a user’s attention is focused. A cursor is used to indicate the gaze direction. As the user’s head moves, so do the cursor.

Gesture

Interactive gestures

Use simple gestures to open apps, select and size items, and drag and drop holograms in your world. Gesture input on the HoloLens is similar to mouse clicks on a desktop. It works in conjunction with the gaze. A user targets an item with their gaze and activates the target with a gesture.

Voice

Voice as the third input

Use voice commands to navigate, select, open, command, and control your apps. Speak directly to Cortana, who can help you complete tasks.  Voice commands are a third input with the Windows Holographic platform. Similar to a Tap Gesture, Voice commands can take action on the selected object.
