Microsoft HoloLens-The augmented reality device.

Microsoft HoloLens is probably the best MR(Mixed Reality) headset to make way to the people.This fully untethered, holographic computer, enables us to interact with high‑definition holograms in our real world.Windows 10 was the first platform to suppport holographic computing with APIs that enable gaze ,gesture,voice and enviromental understanding on untethered device thus enabling the augmented reality device  a success.

The actual works of Hololens can be taken as that of the iron man heads-up display does along with JARVIS AI.With the glasses on you can be a doctor examining the patients organs close-up,or you can be a detective looking for evidence in fragments (like what iron man did in its 3rd enterprise) or a  designer by profession creating a masterpiece,  .Consider bringing the characters of your favourite movie or game into your real world and get it done.

This device from microsoft transforms the way we communicate, create, collaborate, and explore. With such device around the corner ,our ideas are closer to becoming real when we can create and work with holograms in relation to the world around us.

HoloLens is fully untethered and self-contained with an entire Windows 10 device into a headset.Hololens uses a custom-built Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) and an Intel 32 bit processor.Microsoft Hololens comes with  a variety of sensors inside, including an inertial measurement unit, an ambient light sensor, and four environment understanding cameras. These  in collaboration  with a depth sensing camera allow HoloLens to map spaces around our FOV. Microsoft also has a 2-megapixel HD camera to capture videos and photos. Four microphones inside the headset are used to pick up voice commands from users.The camera system also used to track various finger gestures.

Hardware specifications:
HoloLens hardware specifications include 2GB of RAM, 64GB of flash storage.Connectivity option includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi . The Bluetooth support allows HoloLens owners to make use of a new Clicker accessory, included in the box, instead of the air tap gestures to navigate around. To add to the plus 's Microsoft HoloLens entire headset will weigh no more than 579 grams.The battery  run for around two or three hours of active use and has   an standby time of two weeks.

How it works?
The name HOLO LENS is made up of two words Holo ,for hologram and Lens for the glasses used.
The actual concept employs the idea of mixing holographics images with that of real world ones in real time as we move around.This fused picture forms a new reality called the Mixed Reality ,the word often used for devices like Hololens.

The technology now is limited to the use of headsets for the mixed reality or virtual reality experience .However the future may bring to us  a more compact and technologically more advanced MR devices that sits on our wrists or fuses right into our eye lens.Till then we can imagine every ways  technology can assist us .After all imaginations of concepts are the first step towards design and development.
