Microsoft launched their new Surface products but they weren’t the only great news to come out of the company.

They also had great updates on Microsoft Hololens and Xbox One and they’re all connected to Microsoft’s newest OS, Windows 10.

We’re really excited about the Microsoft Hololens. It’s the first fully untethered (no wires attached) holographic computer. It basically uses whatever space is available and project interactive images, video and more.  We’ve featured the Hololens months ago and last week, they announced that they will make it available to developers.  We’ll begin to see Hololens applications for education, design, healthcare and even entertainment (games, yay!). The Microsoft Hololens Development Edition will be available  next year for US$3,000. Oh, and it will be powered by Windows 10.
