Here's the first image of Microsoft's HoloLens prototype shown off to press
The first image of Microsoft's HoloLens prototype has been discovered over at the Oculus Rift subreddit, giving us a glimpse at the prototype shown off to press after the headset's announcement in January.
Interestingly enough, the image was found to be nestled within one of Microsoft's own promotional videos for the headset, though it went unnoticed initially.
While Microsoft has revealed what the HoloLens will look like when it launches, this is the first time we've been able to see what the holographic technology looks like in its current working form. There's a complicated set of head straps connected to a couple of lenses and (barely visible) a large CPU that hangs around the wearer's neck.
Unlike virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift, Microsoft's HoloLens uses something called augmented reality to insert interactive, hologram-like images into your daily life.
Note that this is just an early prototype. The actual final version will look more like glasses or goggles, as shown by these three Microsoft execs at the event. The challenge will be packing all the stuff currently in that CPU into a tiny set of goggles.
