Microsoft released the newest Hololens glasses at the special event held in the first days of October. Hololens was actually just one of the devices revealed there, but the presentation was somewhat impressive and left us impatient to learn what will become of the Hololens. The first glimpse into future is brought to us by Volvo and Microsoft who joined their efforts to perfect the technology and show us what can be done.
So, what exactly are we seeing here now!? Apart from the company’s employees using it to have a bit better understanding of the things they create, the Hololens could actually be used to help customers trick out their cars and see first hand what the result would look like while sitting in some strange creepy room inside the dealership. Now, that is the idea, but we don’t buy it yet. It is cool, no question there, but it seems the benefits of using the Hololens aren’t that huge as we’d like them to be.
If they could develop the Hololens to help you drive better, know your surroundings better and improve your safety or driving capabilities, that would be really cool. For now, only customers in the showroom could benefit from it. Unfortunately, what we see here is a fancy way of presenting car features without any true innovation. The technology will definitely be perfected to a point when we will be able to experience all the features, such as the option to drive with this thing on our heads.
