#UK This is what the future of home entertainment looks like


In the future, we’ll have so much more space in our homes.

No televisions means no entertainment centers. No computers means no large desktop towers, no desks overtaken by iMacs. 

This future is closer than you think, thanks to products like Microsoft’s HoloLens: a “mixed reality” headset that projects entertainment, as well as standard computer stuff like web browsing, into your field of vision.

No screen. No projector. Just a headset. This is HoloLens:

Looks kinda goofy, right? Yeah, agreed. But this is what it can do!

Netflix HoloLens

Yes, that is Netflix floating in space, on as large a screen as you’re capable of seeing in your scope of vision. This is the future of entertainment. And it’s already here.

Microsoft’s HoloLens is already in some homes:

There’s more than just a floating game of “Candy Crush” in this image. Do you see the rest of the platform floating nearby?

In another use case, HoloLens projects a virtual keyboard that doubles as a dictation service for search.
