Exploring Project Baraboo


WIRED together with chief inventor Alex Kipman explored Project Baraboo – which is the official codename for HoloLens.

As we are all curious about the new wearable, Kipman explains how holograms come into existance:

“To create Project HoloLens’ images, light particles bounce around millions of times in the so-called light engine of the device. Then the photons enter the goggles’ two lenses, where they ricochet between layers of blue, green and red glass before they reach the back of your eye. “When you get the light to be at the exact angle,” Kipman tells me, “that’s where all the magic comes in.”
