Microsoft Shows The Augmented Future Of HoloLens

Microsoft has posted a bit of CG describing what it will feel like to use the HoloLens, their augmented reality helmet, in real life. The resulting video, shot at Case Western Reserve University, shows doctors examining bodies as they float in midair, creating a new way to teach anatomy.

The resulting interaction – pinching to hide images, swiping through musculature – is certainly exciting but I’d like to see this stuff happening in real time. Remember – the Microsoft Surface was originally supposed to revolutionize tabletop gaming.
