The Microsoft Hololens is the leading Augmented Reality (AR) Head Mounted Display (HMD) presently available for acquisition.
The Microsoft Hololens
The Microsoft Hololens is a totally self-contained computer, that fits on your head, and allows holograms and data to be shown to a user through a clear headset, similar to a large pair of glasses. Augmented Reality has been used in the Air Force, in the form of heads-up displays, for decades. The Hololens has also been used by the US Navy, at the US NAVY CSP Innovation Lab (iLab), which opened on November 7, 201.
The HoloLens system was incorporated into a platform known as the Augmented Immersive Team Trainer that lets Marines plan missions and conduct “what-if” simulations while looking at a real-world terrain.
This is another excellent example of Augmented Reality being used to save lives. It is very exciting to see the Marines using AR in their training processes to prepare for real-world scenarios using the Hololens and AR in general.
