Microsoft to open its Windows holographic platform to partners

Microsoft logoRight now how we interface with computers is through a screen, a mouse, and a keyboard. This has been the way since a decade or more ago, but with technology like virtual and augmented reality starting to become mainstream, we are starting to see new ways of interacting with our computers.

Microsoft definitely envisions a future where we would interact with our operating systems via a virtual or augmented reality platform, which is why they have announced that they will be opening up their Windows Holographic platform to their partners in hopes that this will spur them to create devices that will make that future a reality.

According to Microsoft, “Today, we announced that Windows Holographic is coming to devices of all shapes and sizes from fully immersive virtual reality to fully untethered holographic computing. Today we invited our OEM, ODM, and hardware partners to build PCs, displays, accessories and mixed reality devices with the Windows Holographic platform.”

That being said, we reckon it will probably be a while before we actually see anything concrete. However at the same time we’re starting to see companies like Oculus, HTC, and Sony leading the charge with virtual reality, and if the rumors are to believed, Microsoft is expected to share their own VR plans at E3 2016.
