Microsoft Now Hosts Free HoloLens Demos Across US & Canada

Road to VR

Louisville, Oxmoor Center. Haven’t been able to make it to any of the big gaming expos (or you don’t know anyone with the $3,000 AR headset)? Microsoft Stores across the US and Canada are now hosting free HoloLens demos, so you can finally see what the hubbub is all about.

How UPS Spoiled my Oculus Rift VR Weekend

VRCircle

Wednesday, May 18 - Friday, May 20 Anxiously check the UPS tracking and watch it travel from Louisville, KY to Kansas City, KS, to Vernon, CA and finally arriving in Aliso Viejo, CA on Friday evening May 20. Good friends of mine are VR fans; many pre-ordered their headsets back in January.

The mixed messages of Microsoft’s Hololens2: very few corporate use cases and lots of limitations

Robert Scoble

Just last summer I visited the factories of Boeing, Tesla, Ford, and Louisville Slugger. [link]. I’m a bit bothered by the overselling of mixed reality, or spatial computing, at least short term (long term my kids’ lives will be dramatically improved by them, we all can see that, but that might not happen for quite a few years). Notice that Microsoft says its Hololens2 is for enterprise uses only, yet to demonstrate it they had a piano on stage.
