The First Holographic Computer, by Microsoft

Connect, create, and explore

Transform the ways you communicate, create, collaborate, and explore. Your ideas are closer to becoming real when you can create and work with holograms in relation to the world around you.

A more natural way to interact

Holograms are responsive to you and the world around you. Microsoft HoloLens enables you to interact with content and information in the most natural ways possible.

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

This is mixed reality

Mixed reality encompasses a wide range of experiences that previously were considered to be only augmented reality or only virtual reality. In mixed reality, people, places, and objects from your physical and virtual worlds merge together in a blended environment that becomes your canvas.

Mixed reality for everyone

Feeling present in your environment is a key aspect of mixed reality, enabling you to move naturally, interact, and explore in three dimensions. Windows 10 will enable this experience for a variety of headsets, from fully self-contained holographic computers like HoloLens to the most innovative and affordable accessories available to consumers.

Holograms enhance the real 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.

Connect, create, and explore

Transform the ways you communicate, create, collaborate, and explore. Your ideas are closer to becoming real when you can create and work with holograms in relation to the world around you.

 Collaborate and communicate

When you collaborate, it’s easier to show than to tell. Your Skype contacts can overlay sketches and holograms on physical objects in your view.

Create what you imagine

Shape holograms to fine‑tune a design, share ideas, and understand your creations in relation to the real world.

Visualize your work

Go beyond what a 2D render can do by working in 3D. Make smarter decisions and prototype faster when you can inspect every vantage point.

Explore places and ideas

See holograms from your colleague’s perspective even if she’s on the other side of the world. Explore ideas in the real world, inside and out.
