Watch video of Microsoft's New Headset Called HoloLens

Microsoft envisions a world where technology could become more personal. Where it could adapt to the natural ways we communicate, learn, and create. The result is a new holographic computing platform, enabled by Windows 10.

HoloLens has unique capabilities that lets it do things that smartphones and PCs can't. For example, one of Microsoft's demos involves a father walking her daughter through a plumbing project over Skype. The father used his tablet to "draw" arrows in three dimensions to tell the daughter exactly where to put the part. That's made possible by the combination of 3D glasses and a sophisticated understanding of the physical world in front of the user.
