E3 2015

It’s time again for the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo known as E3 for short. The annual expo will be running June 15-18, and you can check it out at E3 2015. This is the place to unveil the latest in games and gaming technologies.

HoloLens demo of a Minecraft world

Microsoft put on a demo of their HoloLens technology to show what it can do with the popular sandbox game Minecraft. The demo happened only yesterday, and I think it best to offer you a video that will do a better job of explaining.

Apparently, you can run around with your friends in this dynamic virtual world that is also being represented in your real home.

Microsoft promises to have more information by the July Minecon. It all make me wonder if the purchase of Minecraft by Microsoft was in part that Minecraft is ideally suited for use with HoloLens.

What else?

HoloLens is not only about Minecraft, the technology suggests possibilities far beyond gaming. This brings virtual into the physical world and allows people to then interact or modify objects. Apparently a 3D print design can also be made into a hologram.

I can only imagine how helpful this would be for engineers, architects and interior designers.

Want to really see what some furniture would look like in your space? HoloLens can show you, or will show you as it is not quite ready for public use. It is also tied into Windows 10 which should be available this July 29.

Take a look at the Microsoft HoloLens website, which I might add is quite polished and effective in giving one a sense of the possibilities.

First the Apple watch and now this! Times are a changing, or rather, devices are a changing.
