    Confused about how the Hololens is computer powered by. is it in the headset or is it streamed from a computer/xbox where it does all the processing work?

    Just that I can't imagine if the cpu is in the headset will have a lot of "grunt" to do any complicated graphics/rendering.

    It's all supposed to be inside the headset.

    It is an unthetered device, with cpu, gpu and hpu (holographic processing unit) inside it

    oh right. I guess I am still stuck in the 486 cpu times! Can't imagine the power that this tiny cpu in the headset is able to compute where the objects are (ie wall/table) and "draw on it" (like minecraft), or able to render bits of the bike on top of a real bike like the demo showed. wow.

    I guess the moore's law is still alive and kicking!
