  • These are not- touchable, zero mass objects, having property to interact with the surrounding.
  • It can be operated by the gesture, voice.

What is the difference between Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality?

Virtual Reality

  • Your physical world is completely replaced by the virtual content (animated video or recorded video).
  • You are completely moved out of this real world and you are experiencing the virtual world.
  • Examples: HTC Vive, Sony VR, Google Cardboard—Uses mobile phone to explore VR, Oculus Rift.

  • You are not moved out of the real world but you can create your desired world in this real world.
  • Example: HoloLens

How HoloLens works?

Semitransparent holographic lens

  • Helps to generate multi-dimensional different colored holograms.
  • This Microsoft HoloLens will inject virtual elements into your vision.

Sensor fusion

  • Helps to gather information about your surrounding and understand physical space around you.

HPU-Holographic Processing Unit

  • Processes all the information coming from sensors, including depth sensor and head tracking camera.
  • Allows the HoloLens to understand the gesture and gaze while mapping the world around you.

Optical System

  • Works along with advanced sensors.
  • According to Microsoft, “The main key to holographic experience is holograms that are light point high .i.e. they have high holographic density and are pinned or anchored to the world around you. The more radiant and light point they are, the brighter and richer the hologram becomes.
