Microsoft just announced a new project from their R&D labs called Holograms. The introduction video was completely nuts, showing off new experiences for entertainment, education and more. This involves a new headset and Wired has been lucky enough to have a hands-on already.

Windows 10 will have Holographic API’s that allow for new experiences. Allow universal Windows 10 apps can be made to integrate theses new experiences. Microsoft says this is powered by human and environment understanding and isn’t available on any other platforms. They even pitched developers of Oculus, Leap and other NUI developers to come build for their platform.

Known as HoloLens, the new headset has transparent lenses so we’re talking augmentation here, not virtual reality. The crazy thing is that Microsoft says this is a real product and will ship in the Windows 10 timeframe.

There’s no phone required, no PC needed  and here’s the killer, no wires. We’re keen to know more about battery life.
