HoloLens ($3,000 for the developer kit), Microsoft’s augmented reality headset, occupies a special place in the landscape, apart from typical VR headsets. Today, it is more of a professional tool than a consumer product: A developer kit will be available soon. Augmented reality supplements (augments) the real world rather than replaces it, as VR seeks to do, so that viewing an environment through a headset doesn’t impair your vision or make you sick. With HoloLens, you see integrated holograms—light structures—that people who are not wearing the headset don’t see, based on scripts downloaded to a Windows 10 computer built into the headset. Thus, HoloLens facilitates untethered viewing of high-resolution 3D objects that Microsoft is targeting for home, business, academic, scientific, medical, and yes, gaming applications.
