Not really surprising as we are all interested in having more information about Microsoft’s new development tools and HoloLens.

But don’t throw in the towel if you didn’t get tickets for Build, Microsoft announced officially that it is possible to tune in to live session webcasts. Let’s get ready for Microsoft HoloLens at Build!

Currently the full agenda is not finalized yet, but according to Techcrunch we can expect insights into Windows 10 and other core technologies.

Judging from today’s announcement, the focus of the event will be squarely on Windows 10, which is expected to launch later this year. The Windows 10 Technical Preview is scheduled to expire on April 15, so chances are we will see the first release candidate at Build.

Apart from this, especially the technical part is of great interest. That’s why trustedreviews.com shared another informative article and gives an indication about the hardware components.

What’s powering the HoloLens?

Under the hood, Microsoft has packed the HoloLens with a series of sensors, along with a high-end CPU and GPU, although it has yet to talk specifics about the chipset architecture.

To create an intuitive interaction with holograms, the HoloLens also includes a Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) to smoothly process real-time data captured by the on-board sensors. Microsoft revealed that it worked closely with NASA to help bring the headset to life.
