HoloLens – Augmented Reality & Virtual reality

Everyone looked Over Google Glasses, which Google first exhibited off in 2012, coupled with the Internet and overlaid images and graphics over what wearers saw with their own eyes. The device costs $1,500, which includes apps with basic functionalities.

Now… Microsoft is coming with project with Hologram 3D images in front of your eyes and overlays them on real-world environments named as “Microsoft HoloLens”.


HoloLens have two main Functions included to develop advanced technology which is dealing with HOLOGRAM and LENS.


HOLOGRAM: Hologram is an object like any object in real world, instead of its presence being made entirely of light. i.e., physically a hologram made objects can be viewed from different angles and distances, just like physical objects. Holograms made in 2-D, 3-D, looks just like any other physical objects in your real world.

Holographic objects are non-touchable, doesn’t have physical mass which can be operated by gestures, voice, and environmental understanding on an untethered device. The holograms you’ll see with Microsoft HoloLens can seem life-like, but they are movable, they can be shaped and changed according to the interaction with users or the physical environment in which they are visible.



LENS: The Lens is used to see the holographic objects in dimensions and which helps the user to interact with holographic objects to view in front of the eye, on a wall or anywhere user wants to view. Gestures to create, shape, and size holograms can be viewed with lens.

Microsoft Window 10 is the first platform ever to support holographic computing with APIs for understanding on an untethered device. Windows 10 holograms are Universal Windows apps. All Universal Windows apps can be made to work as holograms. This leads to totally novel ways for us to communicate, create, and explore. Microsoft HoloLens allows you to place holograms in your physical environment and provides a new way to see your world.

Microsoft HoloLens is able to generate a multi-dimensional image visible to a user, which User can observe and view as holographic objects, in the physical world



Interaction with HoloLens

HoloLens use gestures to create, shape and size the holograms. Microsoft HoloLens understands your movements, look and voice, enabling a way for you to interact with content and information obviously. Holographic computing involvements with Microsoft HoloLens are dissimilar from current experiences, such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

Augmented reality (AR): The user sees a layer or screen of data that joins the real world or where the device’s camera is pointed. It is not the same as being able to see holographic objects located in exact physical locations or objects in the real world.

Virtual reality (VR): The user is entirely immersed in a computer-generated reality called virtual world. While immersed in a virtual world, users are best advised to stay seated or keep still to avoid collisions with physical objects that they cannot see in the real world.

HoloLens allows user to enjoy the digital life while staying more connected to the world around, transforming the ways you create, connect, and explore.

Develop holographic apps:

All holographic apps are Universal Windows apps, and all Universal Windows apps can be made to run on Microsoft HoloLens. Start building Windows apps with team Krify. Windows 10, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) makes it easier with us. We have a single app package to reach all Windows 10 devices – PCs, tablets, phones, and more.

Our step by step approach for Development of Holographic apps:

  1. Discussion on client’s idea
  2. Blueprint procreation for apps
  3. Data-driven and analytics based approach for app designing and development
  4. After successful testing, efforts will be focused on publishing Windows apps
  5. Working towards fabricating Monetizing strategy for your apps.
