▶ Must-watch: Microsoft's HoloLens Live Demonstration: how we look at reality is rapidly changing. This is big.

Wow. Mind-boggling possibilities. Why would you ever NOT want to wear this:)) This is HellVen, no doubt:)) The challenge is no longer the technology (well, some of that remains), but how it will change who we are (i.e. social, cultural, ethical).

Be sure to read this review by ArsTechnica, as well. Some excerpts:

For the second time in as many months I feel like I’ve taken a step into the world of science fiction—and for the second time in as many months, it’s Microsoft who put me there… If Microsoft can get the price of HoloLens right, it could become the must-have Minecraft accessory at Christmas time. Microsoft’s decision to buy Minecraft‘s developer all of a sudden makes sense…A Skype demo was intriguing. I, with the headset, was talking to a person using regular Skype on a Surface Pro 3. The person was helping me wire up a light switch (and it seems that, yes, it was a real light switch with real mains electricity running through it). My assistant saw the world through my eyes; I saw him on a floating Skype pane that I could pin in place, where his head would remain….A Skype demo was intriguing.
