Technology continues to push the envelope, blending our digital world with the real world. And if projects like Oculus Rift are any indication, product innovators aren’t slowing things down. Microsoft would like to welcome you to the future with their latest development; HoloLens.

Created by Alex Kipman (the developer of Microsoft’s Kinect), HoloLens is an absolute game changer – at least from the video. Rather than sitting in a chair all day, interacting with a computer screen, HoloLens allows gives users the ability to compute with the physical world. The device rests on your head (reminiscent of ski googles) and projects holograms that can be controlled with voice and gestures – giving you new ways to share ideas, work, learn and collaborate. It will also let you explore places you’ve never been, create things you could only imagine, visualize your work, and offer up more immersive ways to play. HoloLens’ heads up display will be enabled by Windows 10, which will launch at the end of 2015. Check out the video below.
