HoloStudio is shipping with the units/Windows 10.

You guys should seriously give a listen to Windows Weekly. Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurott give a lot of info on HoloLens.

It sounds dumb and I have no interest in AR tech. I want to move away from Microsoft products in the future, not towards more.

Thanks Shineyguy, I'll give it a look.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, get a monopoly so I'm forced to use your product anyway.

I dunno, I thought the whole thing was gimmicky. I don't really want or need an overlay for RL, although there are probably a lot of niche uses for it, say in construction to visualize the next part you're building, or in surgery say, so the doctor knows precisely where to drill to insert the metal pin in your broken bone, or what not.

What I'm really looking forward to is OR CV1 so I can escape reality, not augment it.

Precisely. This sort of stuff has far more practical uses than it does for entertainment. But that's only if it's easy to implement the software that will allow you to do those things like surgery, architecture, etc. The cost for specialized software might make it entirely impractical.

Hey. This guy is an expert on over-promising. If anyone knows the danger that this brings, Molyneux, Over-Promise PHD, does. When he says those words, make sure you listen.

I'm not sure if Molyneux is oblivious, sincere or just trolling us, and laughing his ass off.

I think he has a condition of some sorts. He is right though in this case, the video unless it can do it, don't pay animators to fake things that is conceivably possible but no one will ever do, because it is also crazy complicated and never done before. To sell the product as put on your goggles, and watch a animated figure out of now where just start playing a game on your furniture in perfect resolution and animation. Yeah, shit like that just happens!

Was going to say the exact same thing. I can't think of a circumstance where this saying could possibly be more accurate until we get actual talking pots and kettles.
