On the other – no complex objects in the scene was not. In addition, the geometry of space in Microsoft knew in advance so that they could work on a special display of complex objects. Although such was not.
Not shown looks quite realistic and the new features such device companies believe it is. Another thing is that at the first presentation showed much more (for example, games). Is Microsoft the ability to embellish the helmet will be available only after its release, and that not once since the start, most likely, there will be no games or some other “complex” software.
Whatever it was, the resource is The New York Times said something curious about the project. Firstly, over the helmet worked more than a hundred people over the last few years, although there is no exact data.
Second, the source claims that at first glance, quite a controversial deal to purchase the rights to the game Minecraft 2.5 billion was largely due to just the presence of the sleeve such “aces” as HoloLens. The company believes that the concept of Minecraft sparkle with new colors using augmented reality technology.
