Today, at their Windows 10 Devices event, Microsoft unveiled “Project X-Ray”.
The company’s latest project is a new augmented-reality game prototype for its HoloLens AR headset. Players use an arm-mounted holographic weapon to fight off robots flying around the player’s real-life surroundings. The robots can also interact with furniture and architecture, and even burst through walls.
Game Planet reports:
Microsoft also announced that a Development Edition of the headset will launch in Q1 2016, for the somewhat princely sum of US$3,000. The first version of HoloLens to exist outside Microsoft’s own testing environments, the Development Edition is intended to help developers create apps and feed back on design.
