Microsoft HoloLens is a wireless viewer that integrates the Windows 10 operating system. It is a device designed to exploit the capabilities of the system Windows Holographic. The lenses use advanced sensors, a high-definition 3D optical monitor and a spatial sound system that offers the user the possibility of enjoying Augmented Reality applications through an unprecedented holographic interface, with which they can interact through the gaze, the voice or hand gestures.
Among the different types of sensor used by HoloLens is an energy-efficient depth camera with a field of view of 120 ° x 120 °. Among all the functionalities that the sensors allow, the possibility of head-tracking, video capture and sound capture stands out. In addition to a high-end CPU and GPU, HoloLens also incorporates a Holographic Processing Unit (HPU), a coprocessor that integrates the data from the different sensors and enables actions such as mapping the environment, gesture recognition and voice recognition.
