Microsoft Hololens

With the reported demise (see one version here) of google glasses, news from microsoft about their work on hololens brings some relief for future watches. The video on the possibilities of the hololens provides a glimpse into a 3D virtual environment. Official launch of the hololens reported to be mid-2015 for developers.

Positive reviews on the prototype from usual reviewers - wired, cnet and endgadget.

The hololens can be envisaged as a follow through from microsoft's work with the kinect which has had difficulties moving into the mainstream beyond gaming. Forbes  article recommends some scepticism required beyond microsoft hype based on experiences with the kinect. So it's a watch the hololens space for the interim, to see what actually eventuates.
