The presentation of HoloLens caught a lot of attention. Especially the differentiation between vision, expectation and state of facts gets very difficult due to the promising product.
That’s why so-called expert opinions have to be considered and will be expressed hereafter.
After being very sceptical about HoloLens, Microsoft expert Paul Thurrott is more optimistic about Microsoft’s innovation.
“I now believe HoloLens to be an innovation far more impressive than the voice and gesture capabilities of, say, Kinect. It really is pretty incredible.”

Ben Gilbert provided a two-minded opinion.
“Ben Gilbert on Engadget provides a particularly insightful look at HoloLens, highlighting its potential but also stressing that Microsoft has a lot of development to do before it’s ready for ordinary people. His description makes it sound very unlikely that HoloLens could possibly be available this year.”
Don’t forget to have a look at his full statement: I experienced ‘mixed reality’ with Microsoft’s holographic computer headset, ‘HoloLens’.
In his opinion, the main challenge of HoloLens will be to define the field of application. According to gamestar.de, Molyneux already tried a previous prototype of HoloLens two years ago and bases his argumentation on this experience.
