One of the HoloLens demos was a game called Project XRay, which Microsoft called a “mixed-reality” experience in reference to the holographic component.
In an out-of-this-world demonstration, a man wearing a HoloLens put put a holographic band over his hand and wrist that turned into a cannon. It looked something like Samus’ arm cannon from Metroid Prime. The demo also showed off robots breaking through the wall, forcing the player to dip and dodge blasts while shooting back.
Microsoft also announced that HoloLens developer kits will launch in the first quarter of 2016 for a steep $3,000. We’re excited to see what developers do with the technology.
