    Hi Everyone.

    This is pretty neat, Star Wars doesn't look so far away after you see this.
    It gives you a feel for what the world is really going to look like in only a few years.

    Microsoft is looking for insiders to test this now, and it is available for developers, who can spend the $3,000 on the head set.

    Opening Windows Holographic to Partners for a New Era of Mixed Reality

    I'm going to do some more research on this.

    Here it is...

    Microsoft HoloLens

    This looks totally like the future, that I thought was 20 years away, they say they project sales of 80,000 units a year only 4 years from now.

    I would have to sell the farm!:D Only 3000$. I'll take 10. I know all my great grand kids will want one!
    I think I'll wait until after the election. We may not make another 4 years.:rofl: Hell I might not make another 4 years.:rofl:

    Hi

    Yes a little rich for my blood too, but I'd sure like to try one of these.
    You can imagine where this is going especially for gamers etc.

    But imagine, all you need is a remote camera and you could be standing on the moon.
    Or talking face to face with people half a world away, Pretty neat.

    That would be an improvement, but when I went to the MS site to find a price $3,000 is what it said.

    I'll look again.

    Hi Neemo

    It sounds really neat, but I'd like to see it work before I would buy it, and I don't want to pay $3,000.
    Buy maybe by the time it goes retail the price will be down.

    I'm a big stereo fan, started out doing Anaglyphic Images (Red, Blue glasses) way back before 3D monitors, and I'm really interested in VR, but I don't have a head set yet.

    I do have a Stereo Monitor and Nvidia 3D Vision, and I've learned how to create my own 3D images.

    I use Poser, a 3D illustration program that has real depth in the illustration, then I create 2 images, with the camera offset to represent eye spacing.

    When the 2 images are combined in 3D Image maker they can be saved as an MPO file that can be viewed in Nvidia 3D Vision Photo Viewer.

    I've done 3D video in the past, but since I upgraded to Windows 10 I'm having problems with Codecs.
    I can't open my .avi files in 3D Movie maker because I says I don't have the right codecs but I haven't been able to figure out what I need.

    I've installed several different MPG codecs but still get the message.
    I've been working on that today but still no luck.

    I'm going to go now and see if I can find a forum for the 3D movie creator.

    Mike
