Why Is Microsoft’s HoloLens So Promising? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why is Microsoft’s HoloLens so promising?” you ask?  Good question. Timely too. (Besides, it beats answering the question: “Why don’t guys admit that they really only use the internet to watch free porn?” Seriously? Speaking as a male, yours truly also uses the internet to work! There’s more to life than watching free porn. What about all the folks that use the internet to hook-up? Who needs porn when you have lonely housewife and will-do-it-with-anyone dating sites? Give the human race more credit, mmmkay?)

For those not up on all the latest tech news, Microsoft unveiled a new product this past Wednesday called HoloLens.  Specific details –even the price and release date– are near not yet known. Nonetheless, HoloLens reportedly takes the concept of “virtual eyewear” to a new level by using holograms. Didn’t we already see similar products introduced in the last year or so? Why is Microsoft’s HoloLens so promising a product in comparison?

Let’s compare. First there is Facebook’s newly-acquired Oculus. According to tech product pundit “Pucker” Oculus has at least one issue. He says: “Oculus (VR) has limited use in gaming (slow games that won’t make you sick when the sights don’t match your inner ear, etc). Augmented reality + interaction could completely redefine how we use computers. (HoloLens) is the future.”

Alyssa Newcomb at ABC News weighed in on Google Glass. She says that “HoloLens also offers the same experience (as Google Glass) of overlaying images into a space but seems packed with more features than the first edition of Glass.”

She notes that folks who wore Google Glass “all the time — even while walking down the street alone . . . could still talk to their glasses and gesture, spawning a new noun: Glasshole. “ There were also “privacy concerns since the device allows the wearer to take photos and videos without anyone noticing.  (This) “led to the device being banned in many movie theaters, restaurants and even a Las Vegas strip club.”

Patrick Moorhead, an analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, told ABC News: “(HoloLens) could succeed where others have failed because Microsoft doesn’t intend it to be worn all the time and do everything.”  He does state, however, that HoloLens is both “a workplace tool” and “a home enthusiast device”.

Newcomb also reported that “there was plenty to geek out over from Microsoft’s demo, which showed NASA researchers using it to explore Mars. Imagine holographic Skype calls, playing a holographic video game in a world you’re a part of, or using the glasses to virtually design a new product.”

Why is Microsoft’s HoloLens so promising? Now you know.
