A year ago Microsoft demonstrated about their Microsoft Hololens technology. They have been in contact with developers for creating Holographic future together. They also claimed that they have made a lot of progress with this technology. Developers have suggested lot of ideas and contributed to its ecosystem using “Share your Idea” campaign.
Microsoft have also introduced new partners like Volvo cars, Autodesk fusion 360. Also, continuing their progress with existing partners like NASA.

How it works ?
It has Optical Lens that project the objects in the real world using low latency. The best Holographic Experience using the hologram which is point rich. Hololens have the density of 2.5K radiants. when there will be more light points and radiants, the hologram will be more brighter and richer.
