 Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft Holo Lens

Microsoft has just introduced Project HoloLens, a new futuristic vision of how the company sees the future of computing and virtual reality. This is a viewer through which users can view reality overlaid holograms and interact with them. It is an Oculus Rift on steroids.

HoloLens is a viewer that features a front panel, and even its own CPU and GPU. It’s kind of its own Oculus Rift, but with many differences. For starters, all are made wirelessly via integrated sensors. That is, HoloLens running holograms and virtual reality in a 100% native. It is a brutal change. Basically, Microsoft is intent to radically reinvent user interaction with the software and virtual reality.

Project HoloLens will be more or less available while Windows 10 is 100% ready for all users. Microsoft’s idea is that this technology can be used for almost any scenario: enterprise collaboration, gaming, communication between users (to Skype in 3D and in real time with another person) … promises. A lot!



razer OSVR

Despite all the coverage, most people have never heard of, or purchased a pair of virtual reality (VR by its acronym in English). Glasses Oculus Rift is still not a mass product, but you can buy a cheap kit for developers and live the experience you want. The Samsung Galaxy Gear VR is already on the market, but needs a specific phone to use and has a limited software library.

Avegant Glyph

Avegant Glyph

The Avegant Glyph seems a huge pair of headphones over the ear with built-in screens headband, and that’s basically what they are. They can be worn before the eyes to see and hear your favorite, or just hear the content and use it as headphones.

These are not virtual reality glasses, such as the Samsung Gear VR, although you might think that they look similar. They are some screens that are placed over the face with a headset that can connect to most video sources via HDMI.

The Glyph uses a completely different screen technology. According to Avegant, no screens: instead, it projects light from 2 million micro mirrors on the headphones, and then directly on your retinas. That sounds scary, but the idea is not very different from the DLP, a technology that was popular on television and in the early days of HDTV and which is still used in projectors. But in this case, the projectors are in your eyes.


There are plenty of Virtual Reality headsets in the market to choose from in various price ranges, choose the one which suits you the best. If you have not experienced it yet, it’s the high time to travel in this exciting virtual world.
