Microsoft’s HoloLens embraces virtual reality and augmented reality to create a new reality. Mixed Reality.

Virtual reality immerses you in a simulated world. Augmented reality overlays digital information on top of your real world. By understanding your environment, mixed reality enables holograms to look and sound like they’re part of your world.

Mixed reality with Microsoft HoloLens blends 3D holographic content into your physical world, giving your holograms real-world context and scale. Interact with both digital content and the world around you as you explore 3D in 3D.

Holograms are responsive to you and the world around you. Microsoft HoloLens enables you to interact with content and information in the most natural ways possible.

Gaze

Built-in sensors let you use your gaze to move the cursor so you can select holograms. Turn your head and the cursor will follow.

Gesture

Use simple gestures to open apps, select and size items, and drag and drop holograms in your world.

Voice

Use voice commands to navigate, select, open, command, and control your apps. Speak directly to Cortana, who can help you complete tasks. The more she learns about you, the better she gets.

Hololens

“People, not devices, are mobile. We are ready for technology to move beyond devices, beyond screens and pixels, and beyond today’s digital borders.”

– Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow, Operating Systems

Collaborate and communicate.

When you collaborate, it’s easier to show than to tell. Your Skype contacts can draw on their screens to place holograms over physical objects in your view.

Create what you imagine.

Shape holograms to fine‑tune a design, share ideas, and understand your creations in relation to the real world.

Visualize your work.

Go beyond what a 2D render can do by working in 3D. Make smarter decisions and prototype faster when you can inspect every vantage point.

Explore places and ideas.

See holograms from your colleague’s perspective even if she’s on the other side of the world. Explore places and ideas in the real world, seeing them inside and out.
