You saw Microsoft's crazy hologram headset, right? photo
You saw Microsoft's crazy hologram headset, right?
by Jordan Devore

Earlier today, Microsoft held a Windows 10 event. My stream kept dying, but I posted about the Battletoads shirt worn by head of Xbox Phil Spencer during his segment about gaming.

Much of the event was uninteresting or irrelevant for this audience, with one huge exception: an augmented-reality headset called Project HoloLens that can display holograms all around you.

Outlets like Wired, The Verge, and Gizmodo were able to try out the device and several demos, including a basic version of Minecraft shown above. Take your pick. Then, jealousy.

Fable Legends is headed to PC with DirectX 12 and cross-platform play with Xbox One, which is nice and all, but did you see Phil's shirt? That's Battletoads alright. The time is now.
