  • Windows Mixed Reality: The future?

    Posted on October 4th, 2017 at 08:31 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The Windows Mixed Reality demo is up on YouTube. I suggest you watch, to see where Microsoft’s headed.

    Personally, I’m skeptical — most (if not all) of you would rather balance a spreadsheet while on rollerblades, than try to get any work done in MR — but it does point in an interesting direction.

    Big question is whether the big-iron approach to MR from Microsoft will be upstaged by phone-based Google or Apple. I mean, can you imagine carrying around a laptop, just to power an MR headset? I don’t think so.

    That said, it’s definitely an exciting new direction.
