4 specific applications were presented at the Windows 10 live event. Apparently, there is a lot more to do with HoloLens as the potential of AR is increasing permanently.

Especially augmented gaming is fascinating many people. But which games are actually suitable?
Steven Wong from Shacknews explored exactly this question and shared 9 games that hold great potential for augmented gaming.
Here are some of his examples:
1. The Sims
The Sim Creator from The Sims 4 is a perfect example. Imagine having a small 3D hologram of your Sim standing atop your desk as you use your hands to pull on arrows to manipulate its proportons. It would be like creating a virtual sculpture, with the added fun of it coming to life once it’s done.

2. Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Perhaps it could heighten the experience by allowing players to see more from their periphery. It could paint the floor and walls of your room with matching environment tiles, so it feels like you’re playing the game from wherever you are in the game. Lastly, if you get stuck or lost on a level, you could ask ask Cortana where you should go.

3. Alien: Isolation
“You could use the HoloLens to scan through your house and its furniture. Then you would set the starting point and exit, place bystanders, enemies, and gadget parts in different rooms, and pretend (for the sake of the experience) that all other doors and windows don’t work.”
