I've had a chance to have some quality time with the Microsoft HoloLens thanks to the Emerging Experiences team. It's an interesting device. Despite the name it doesn't have anything to do with holography. Rather the name seems to be inspired by a metaphor for the experience of using it. Having gotten a chance to do some development I've started writing about my experiences. I wrote in expanded form a blog post published on the Emerging Experiences blog about the history of stereoscopic devices. I've also wrote about the making of a very simple game-like experience in an article posted on CodeProject.com. More articles are to follow.
