    Hololens is only new to young children & those who eather cant remember or are uninformed . Virtual reality & related devices & ideas have been out for over 20 years! Hololens is just a new version with an updated device, a dorky uncomfortable visor they named hololens. You must wear the visor , but that means that youre not seeing a true hologram. True hologram technology exists and a true hologram is visible by the naked eye in 3d . True hologram technology is still being kept secret by the military. This hololens cant compare with true holographic technology . Im actually surprised that microsoft is introducing this as new, untethered ,& holographic because its none of these. If its untethered then you wouldn't need to wear the uncomfortable visor,& I already explained how its not new & not true holographic technology.

    You might want to put some faith into a search engine and link to anything that backs up your claims.

    Although holography has been the darling of science fiction, it is still pretty limited and still currently needs a medium for projecting, such as the Hololens' refraction screen or a tank of easily excitable gas. While standalone holograms do exist, they are still currently limited to points of white lights, with no variance in color or any significant resolution. Below is currently among the most advanced holographic technology that meets what seems to be your definition.

    You just created an account yesterday, and both your posts are baseless attacks against Hololens.

    I think we know what's going on here.

    It's always interesting to see random people on the internet claiming to know about supposedly completely secret military technology.

    Especially if you actually pay attention to how military technology is currently working. That fancy new fighter jet is an example.

    I think you misunderstood what untethered means.

    I'm pretty sure if there were any more advanced hologram technology available, NASA would be sending that, rather than Microsoft's Hololens to the International Space Station.

    You know how it is with top secret military stuff. It's so secret that nobody uses it, despite everyone knowing about it.

    You couldn't be more wrong. Sure the concept has been around since star trek, vr has been around a while and crappy at has been around on phones... But NOTHING like hololens has ever existed in reality... Only in sci fi.

    I cannot think of any rational reason where cheaper off-the-shelf technology will not suffice. This level of competency is up there with keeping lizard people a myth. if it were true, I would've gotten at least a whiff from the information curating websites I frequent.

    Well I'm sure Microsoft will figure out holo-emitters by Gen-3, circa 2030.
