There was first the regular tube televisions. Then, we marveled at the flat LCD TV’s. After we admired the minimalist models, the Smart TV’s came out that tapped us into our digital content. Now, here comes the HoloLens!
Just like you’d see in a hologram, that is the philosophy behind Microsoft’s HoloLens. The picture of the TV screen will literally come out of the actual screen. So, you’ll be able to see football players in all their 6 foot 5, 250 pound glory. For lesser mortals like Russell Wilson, at 5′ 11′ and 206 pounds (Hey, I’m a Giants fan. Go Blue!), you’ll see his full dimensions right in your living room.
Here’s a quick video to show you how it will look:
All you’ll need is a virtual reality headset and you will enter a new dimension. Multiple people may watch at the same time and you’ll feel like you’ll never have to go to a live game again, ever.
Currently, Microsoft has released the HoloLens to developers to work on while there is no release date yet for consumers. Just imagine the possibilities and I give credit to the Microsoft support team for introducing this revolutionary product.
