Is Microsoft’s, “Windows Holographic,” The Next Big Thing?

Holographic

I have been reading up today on the exciting news from Microsoftthat they will soon be releasing a new holographic headset that is a self-contained unit. Yes, self-contained in a small headset! You walk around and can interact holographically with what seems to be any environment that you have before you. Basically everything. This sounds amazing and I’m very excited about the technology.

I do have a couple of hard questions though: What are the implications of such a device socially? Just fifteen years ago we to sit around for hours and chat with friends or meet at the field for a ball game. This activity has now been replaced with chatting via an app or meeting up on a server for a remote game.

As this product rolls out: I’ll put more thoughts down and follow its progress and potential.
