Curious if the Hololens FOV issue is technology limited - or limited just by cost. Assume its a combination of both...either way, cant wait to get my hands on, err, head in it. (I have a bad feeling that it still wont be released by Build 2016, or even E3 2016 though)
DARPA needs to add a test to lift and carry/assist a disabled person (on the battlefield a soldier gets shot in the leg and cant walk, etc.)
Wonder if you could create a 'StaffPad'-like app, but instead of being for musicians, it would be for developers. Could you develop an entire application just using Pen input? Would that be easier/quicker than just using mouse/keyboard?
I just hope that woman aren't writing the software for these self-driving cars :) (that's a joke btw)
One problem I do see is how insurance will work going forward - if there is an issue and an automated car wrecks into another car because of some glitch - who pays up? insurance, owner of the car, manufacturer of the car? Does it matter if its two automated cars wrecking - or if its an automated car and a normal car? Will insurance premiums on automated cars be higher/lower than normal cars?
Not sure why they didn't call it HaloLens (given Cortana, Spartan names) - I'm going to have a hard time calling it HoloLens.
I think in 5-7 years when it becomes smaller - it will be as common as a 2nd monitor in the workplace today. I can imagine that instead of having multiple monitors - you can just 'throw' documents (doc, xls, ppt, .cs, .cpp) up on a cube wall and now you have unlimited deskspace to work in, you just turn your head/chair. If you want to share and discuss a document - you can just share it virtually. Would love to have it hooked up to a Surface tablet so that as I write on the tablet, the ink shows up in others users virtual whiteboard.
Unfortunately, DWHs (Driving While Holograming) will cause all sorts of legal issues.
Side note - which would be safer - texting while driving, talking on a phone while driving, talking via Bluetooth while driving, or wearing HaloLens (sorry, I still think you should change the name) while driving?
