    You have no idea how many things are running through my head right now. The possibilities are endless.


    Place yourself in a blank room. Now imagine that you put hololens on and you want to play a game. You pull up a miniature version of New York City that you are able to walk around. You decide you want to cause some chaos and become a Godzilla sized monster towering over buildings and you just start going HAM on the city. Punching through buildings, kicking cars, blowing everything up that looks at you the wrong way. Now imagine that's just a normal Tuesday for you. The things you could possibly do on this are almost endless. I can keep going on about this for a hour if I wanted to.

    If watched the ad you would see you can play MC on it. Which has lead me to believe (conspiracy) that hololens was the major driving force that led them to buy Minecraft. Just think about being able to see your own Minecraft world in person. Being able to turn your own room into a Minecraft world. Imagine being chased by zombies and creepers in your own house and having one blow up and make a giant hole in the floor.

    Probably not, this kind of technology would be more popular with Google Glass and that other thing that I can't remember the name of but is glasses-shaped and do this kind of stuff

    Hololens has to be connected to your computer. It explains this in the live demonstration if you guys cared to watch it.

    OR I believe that's what you are talking about but the difference here is that it's holograms. You can touch the holograms with hololens and you can see through the screen. Again explained in the video.

    I watched it, didn't understand it. I'm not a genius with technology.

    I predict this: 10 years later, we'll all be wearing these, aged then someone will send a signal, and these will hypnotise us and we will become a mindless arm-No? Huh, ok then... Anyway, I want one now.
