Microsoft HoloLens: My impression
On my last day at IFA 2018 in Berlin, I had the first opportunity to try out the Microsoft HoloLensprobeer Here's what I think of it.
The Microsoft HoloLens looks very similar to other mixed reality glasses and VR glasses with the difference that you can still see your surroundings through the lens. Behind the glass there is a display on which the holograms that the glasses can conjure up in the room are shown.
The glasses are made of black plastic and are therefore very light. The bracket that comes around the head has also been padded to make it comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, the glasses hardly fit me because of the strange shape of my head. Constantly pressing somewhere or the HoloLens slipping down.
With the HoloLens you could then do a demo of a shooter gameprobeer Holes were constantly being punched into the walls of the room through which enemy robots could enter. I had to shoot them with finger movements recognized by the camera in the glasses, which worked surprisingly well. In addition, there were never any performance drops and the sound that was output via the speakers on the side also sounded totally okay. Also, the cracks and holes in the wall were displayed perfectly.
However, it should be noted that the HoloLens is actually not there for gaming - the headset was developed more for business purposes. If you still want to have the glasses as a private person, they cost around 3000 euros.
