HoloLens initial impressions: It’s real, it’s crazy, it’s incredible! (BTW what about tactile/texture glove interaction?)
Microsoft’s HoloLens is so impressive, it’s rightfully been branded as either fake, simulated, vapourware and similar words of that ilk.
All the visual stuff, it’s all real with no lag, everything reacting as if it were real. TheVerge says it was kinda incredible! They thought it was a really smart way to use this technology and not something they’d expect (that’s saying something as these are super tech geeks that expect a lot).
Whilst you can interact by voice and airtap, there should hopefully be a way to interact fully with your hands.
What about kienctic gloves that can simulate textures of things? We already have materials that can do that. Imagine the gloves knowing what something should feel like, from fur to sand?
