    Needless to say, I am more than impressed with HoloLens.
    What I would like to know though is how Microsoft plans on implementing Skype going forward.
    Yes, we saw a demo of it, but it only showed how skype works if only ONE person in the call uses HoloLens.
    Technically I see no way to use skype for more than a voice call if both attendants wear the device, since there simply is no way to capture the caller with video.
    Or will it be a call where each participant sees what the other side sees?
    What would be the use case for that?

    Don't het me wrong, I like what I saw, I just wonder where it might go from there...

    What do you think?

    The only way I can see a two way video call using the hololens is if the person using the device is facing a mirror. Hmmm.... I wonder if it would be possible to create a holographic mirror?

    Well one person is enough, because how'd you see each other if both of you are wearing Le HoloLens? :P so you can take turns in wearing it in every call haha :P

    I thought abut that too, but all you would see then is a person with the face mostly covered with the HoloLens. Doesn't sound too appealing to me. Maybe there simply isn't much more than the one party HoloLens use case?

    I never thought about that :P hm, so Hololens isn't as good for Skype video calls as I thought it was.
