Microsoft Hololens

Has anyone seen or have interest in the Microsoft Hololens product.

This is some really neat stuff. How new is it? How seasoned? Is it a good buy now or just too speculative? Kind of like buying into Oculus Rift before content is available.

It's still in development, no market for it as of yet. You can purchase a dev kit though for $3000 It does look pretty neat. There is a commercial version for a couple grand more.

Agree

Yes, I agree, it is early in development. $3k developer kit, $5 for commercial enterprise.

The videos are pretty cool. I see that it will probably require some of the skills used here in 3D modeling.

It would be fun. You could take off from your coffee table, fly around objects in the home. It uses the technology from the Xbox Kinect to see the room and objects in the room.

This is probably years down the road though for RealFlight.
