Microsoft has announced HoloLens, a holographic, mixed-reality head-mounted display built on Windows 10, which it will release in late 2015. This exotic-sounding product will offer many of the best features of virtual reality and augmented reality, giving infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders a powerful new tool to enable workforce scenarios like remote collaboration, field work, and training. In fact, it has the potential to radically improve how you conduct business in each of those areas. It’s also a powerful platform for creating interaction innovations for use by and with customers. This report explains what HoloLens is and why you should place it on your radar for pilots in 2015 and beyond.
