While many companies are busy studying and working on virtual reality, Microsoft implements mixed or hybrid reality technology in Hololens. In simple words, it’s a combination between real and virtual worlds where virtual objects are presented as holograms. So, let’s look deeper into this world with Hololens.

Plus, there are 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage (54 GB are available for users). That is literally more power than many laptops on the market.

The highlight of this device is a highly advanced and incredibly accurate system of cameras, sensors and other detectors. As a result, the headset is really intelligent – it knows what you’re doing and recognizes the environment around you, providing you with everything, so that you could feel comfortable in the mixed reality.
