    For those who don't know, Microsoft has been working on a piece of technology which can technically be summed up as this: Holographs in Real Life. 

    If you haven't heard of it, here is the site: MICROSOFT HOLOLENS.

    The thing is, it kinda scares me. I know it won't work out as it seems it will, and it'll not be as cool as it looks, but... The fact that we're actually beginning development on 3D technology in real life.. It's almost as if our real world is merging with the virtual world. I just don't think that should happen. I literally sat there and watched the reveal, and tears almost came to my eyes. 

    I'm all for advancing technology, but just... Maybe they could limit this stuff to medical and scientific research. The fact that anyone can have one spooks me. I just think we're in the right era of technology and we're moving too fast.

    Help.

    I have a project in mind with this kind of hardware and some more things that would blow everyone's minds out, but I'm not sure if I should work on it.

    Hololens is something that would do just great for it.

    One of their biggest things is that you can take your Minecraft world, and scale it down, and view the whole map on your living room table, and tweak it.

    I agree with this. Technology doesn't need to advance in the world of personal use anymore.

    And your point about 'merging the virtual world with the real world' is deep as fuck as well.

    Thought: How about we develop technology that can feed starving children instead?

    @JfN but how will that be 'profitable' for the companies. Todays' world only focuses on aspects where they feel that they can make money with. So, basically, what you're saying will never be profitable.

    It won't function as well as it should for the consumer. Either way its awesome, because it gets us even more down the technological path.

    Can't wait to see what the next 20 years bring.
