Microsoft Hololens Developer edition were kept in the presentation and many allowed to see how it works. The official video introduction of Hololens looks very impressive and many raised a question, will that be the exact graphics and experience or it will be different in reality as the introduction video clearly uses graphics content.

If it works as demoed then we are not far from seeing the Iron Man Hologram Scene in reality. Microsoft Hololens Developer Kit is kept on display and many experienced it after the presentation. ArsTechnica reviewed it and gave their honest opinion about the current hololens developer kit.

I felt it to be a much more compelling future than VR, too. The VR systems I’ve tried make me feel toodetached from the outside world, to a degree that I find disorienting. Also unlike VR systems, HoloLens didn’t make me want to instantly vomit. It felt very natural.

After exploring Mars, I don’t want to remove the headset, which has provided a glimpse of a combination of computing tools that make the unimaginable feel real. NASA felt the same way.

I turned the page and read few comments in youtube where the official intro video of microsoft hololens posted. Many feel that this will take years to reach consumers and the demo contains too much graphics and feels like a sci-fi movie. Another interesting comment is, Microsoft is trying to sell more copy of Windows 10 with this Hololens demo.
