Windows Mixed Reality

Windows 10 Mixed Reality combines real and generated images using Microsoft's HoloLens goggles (see mixed reality). Introduced in 2015 as Windows Holographic, Windows Mixed Reality superimposes 3D holograms into the surrounding environment.

HoloLens
The first implementation of the platform is the HoloLens goggles, which evolved from Microsoft's Kinect technology but with a 120 degree field of vision. The HoloLens has a built-in CPU and GPU, as well as a holographic processing unit (HPU). In 2019, HoloLens 2 debuted with a more comfortable design and an even wider viewing angle. A "hard hat" model is also available for hazardous job sites. See augmented reality, augmented virtuality and virtual reality.
