    How about something really mundane, once the technology matures and miniaturizes to the point you wouldn't be embarrassed to wear it outside the house. This scenario shows both good and bad aspects of the use case.

    You walk into the local WalMart. You hear the voice of Cortana suggesting that she can show you your shopping list. It pops up right in front of you , including prices and the total it's going to cost you. Looking at the list, a couple of items are highlighted, meaning they're currently out of stock but the store's inventory system projects them to be restocked day after tomorrow. She determines the quickest path to where all the items are on the shelves, and projects a path on the floor for you to follow. When you get to each item, there's a big red arrow pointing at the item you're looking for. When you get to the checkout, you see all of your credit and debit cards and you "grab" one of them and then the transaction is automatically completed.

    On the way out to the car, Cortana tells you she's found the items that were out of stock at another nearby store. Unfortunately, you don't notice the goons waiting for you in the dark who steal the device off your head, beat you up and leave you writhing in pain. But as you were being attacked you yelled "Hey Cortana, call the police!". Pictures of the thieves are uploaded to law enforcement, who arrest the perps a few blocks away. Your precise location is relayed to the ambulance driver. The ER surgeon does some stitches to fix some internal bleeding by using his hands and gestures to control a surgical probe that's been inserted thru a small incision.

    I could go on and on with this, but you get the idea.

    2. expanding the screen when playing an xbox game to make it more immersive
    3. People could make 3d models of themselves which could be shown to people you talk to. Those 3d models could be integrated into larger scenes. You could have a cup of coffee on mars or in paris with a friend sitting on a chair in front of you and have a real conversation with him. When sitting in front of a kinect, maybe the 3d model could move like the real person does in real time.
    4. Monkey Island Style games with a real scene created around you. You could move through the room and find the objects you might need and interact with them to solve the riddles.

    6. For start it would be kinda cool to see a character u play in lets say dragon age right next to the screen. Nice when you get new gear and stuff.
    7. I dont know, but it would be awesome to play almost real tennis ^^ kinect tracking your movements and the glasses creating the court and the ball.

    A few ideas I had:

    - Weather on the ceiling - you look up, and see a sky above with floating measurements (ie temperature, wind, humidity etc). The sky changes depending on the weather outside, and if it's raining or snowing, then raindrops/snowflakes can seem to lightly fall. Alternatively, you go to a window, and the measurements appear on the glass as you look outside.
    - Taking your work with you - similar to what happens in the Iron Man films. You work on a PC, but need to move elsewhere for a few minutes. Maybe you need to remember something you just looked up or wrote, so as you get up, the screen, or a single object on it, seems to come away from the monitor and move with you. When you sit back down at your PC again, or look at your Windows phone/tablet, it will go back into the screen.
    - Horror gaming. Imagine Slender Man, or some zombies following you around your house whilst you play a game. That would be the true meaning of horror. Loving the idea of a holographic Walking Dead FPS.
    - Fresh paint - you can paint or doodle on walls, maybe even a holographic canvas, and save the images in a 2D form to look at on another device.

    I think this is better than Occulus because imagine you can hold a hologram gun -- both hands while saying grenade and it comes out and you grab it and you throw it to the enemy. Virtual reality sucks you in while Augmented reality lets you stay the real-world and technology comes to you. So you won't be anti-social-- I guess.

    I hope MS really make this thing perfect from desiqn, size, weight, specs, functions, and price... I can say that hololens will be the next gen of technology. You don't need any PC, any 2-1hybrid, any tablet, any phone, TV, and all that electronics system.. This gonna be one stop living service..

    Ideas: 1. All PC ability to be served and desiqned for windows holograpic
    2. Make Office to be able run on hololens too
    3. TV ( local station and online services
    4. Games from xbox or mobile or anything
    5. Weather, stock, clock, all essentials
    6. Animals, globe, and bring more kind of places like mars that has been made, all other misc
    7. Its not only hologram but your health monitor.. It detect hearth beat, blood status, all hospital tech can do

    If this happend and MS did it first.. The world gonna change for ever.. Dont let appl* make it better.. They just stole and say they are the first and the best.. Bring it on MS! :)

    Exactly what I was thinking. So you become Iron man like and maybe Cortana can now alert you. Hey server1 CPU is high, or server2 has low disk space and then you can issue commands like - what's the cause? etc., etc.... (but this could be like years in the making but we should never stop imagining).

    Years away from something like that. But without people dreaming it up and working towards it, we'll never get there. This is the kind of imagination we need to keep alive with this type of tech.

    Lots of gamer stuff here but, I see this as a real opportunity for healthcare. The possibilities are endless and if MS hasn't already approached the medical manufactures somebody isn't doing their job.

    I had a dream... Where you build a makeshift cockpit out of cardboard, then use the HoloLens to bring it to life (#StarFoxHL) (some assembly required) (barrel rolls not included)

    Also, a try-before-you-buy shopping experience would be awesome! Imagine trying out your dream gadget, or seeing how you'd look in new clothing, or even test driving your dream car!

    I'd like to get the idea out to Microsoft to offer a model of the Hololens that is certified as "safety glasses". I work in the chemical industry and see a lot of potential in using this in all types of industrial setting including in the field. Such as having a vendor or expert watch me work on a piece of equipment and offer training, advice, and trouble shooting. That being said, for companies to let us use this in the field it would need to qualify as eye protection. Also, it would be helpful if it didn't impede the person wearing this from wearing their hard hat at the same time.

    I'll happily wear my HoloLens outside the house. I won't have it on all the time but I'll certainly have it with me and I'll put it on when I need it. e.g. On the bus or train or when I am trying to find some place I've never been to before. It is just something people will have to get used to, like bicycle helmets - they have been a legal requirement in Australia for the last 25 years or so and now you don't even notice, but when the laws first came in people wearing them looked like idiots. In fact, if you wore your HoloLens under your bicycle helmet, it would just look like you were wearing sunglasses and headphones (and using HoloLens whilst cycling would be awesome).

    If this is what people really want to do with HoloLens then I despair for the future of the world. Here are a couple of app ideas for medical/health things:

    Emergency Assistance App - calls an ambulance and/or guides you through emergency procedures like CPR, with extra assistance from emergency responders via Skype.

    Parkinson's Assist App - many Parkinson's sufferers need a little help to get themselves moving. An app could provides lines on the path ahead of them, which helps them get their feet moving.

    In general I want HoloLens to replace my tablet and maybe my smartphone, too (if it has 4G/LTE). I'll want it to handle all my communication - calls, SMS and email - as well as navigation, calendar, etc. I also want to use it instead of my computer monitor to watch videos and streaming TV/movies. It could replace my big screen TV by projecting onto a wall, which I would paint black to maximise the image quality, as well as being able to project content from my DVR, using DLNA. That way I could watch free-to-air TV and DVDs with my HoloLens.

    That's the bottom line for me - I don't see that it needs to do anything especially amazing because it will be able to do all the mundane things in an amazing way. And that is how I think it will succeed (or fail).

    I am surprised that no one has said this on here...
    Virtual Assistant. Think Cortana except its actually a person. This seems like the most likely thing since it is built on Win 10 anyways.

    my next idea was a Haloworld. You can essentially create things in your own Haloworld and place them anywhere. You would then control your access rights to your own Haloworld (like file sharing) and could allow others to see your projects. I would imagine there to be a public domain as well where if you were to walk outside, you would get bombarded with marketing, sculpture graffiti, and other crazy things. I am just picturing two people playing with a virtual dinosaur on the corner while the Superbowl lights up the sky, all the while I have my own person walking musician walking next to me.
    As an engineer, the design ideas are endless with making catalogs of parts available from online services managed by the vendors, suppliers, etc...

    Cooking instructional demonstrations in your kitchen (and virtual cataloging so you don't forget where everything is).

    Interior Design studios from manufacturers... I.e. How is that couch going to look and fit in my living room...

    Virtual speeches/press confrences...

    I could go on...
    Yes, It has potential. Walking inside your home before decorated but watching the proposed design

    Working on your main monitors and being able to move extra windows and documents off into space around the monitors would help a lot with anything requiring a lot of back and forth referencing. I often have piles of papers around me, multiple texts, and there's currently no way to replicate this digitally. Hololens could be a step in that direction.

    The astounding thing about the Hololens is that the number of applications is infinite. When you observe what you're doing during the day, ideas keep popping up; food, travel, health, money, home, style, environment redesign, dating and relationships. The list is endless. I've created a site at hololens.technology were I collect information about hololens applications and hololens technology. There is so much going on that tracking and compiling information should be a joint effort so you're welcome to join in and discuss share ideas and news.
