National Video Games Day Comes to Life with the HoloLens

In a wave of new technology updates, we have taken notice to a completely unique experience – mixed reality.  In a mixture of augmented and virtual reality, the Microsoft HoloLens brings holograms to life with complete interaction between our fingertips and 3D holographic objects.  One can only imagine the incredible uses for such a tool, but of course we all mostly just want to play with it.  National Video Games Day, on September 12th, is inspiring us to see how the HoloLens is transforming the video game world.  Check out some articles, photos, and videos below to see just how awesome the HoloLens truly is.

Students demonstrate their HoloLens apps after a quarter of VR and AR design

At the University of Washington, a computer science classroom is equipping their students with HoloLens headsets to let them develop their own apps. One app developed is called HoloScanner, which redesigns the process of scanning a room and turns it into a game that can then be used for other apps. Other apps include augmented reality cooking, a painting app, and more.
