Hola HoloLens: Reg man gets face time with Microsoft's holographic headset


Going dark

I wonder if the front of the glass display could be made to go dark when playing an Occulus VR type game to block out the outside world, and then switched back to clear for AR? Perhaps objects could be selectively displayed in VR mode so that when you walk within 1.5m of the coffee table or family dog they appear preventing accidents and the "Trip anxiety" that goes with VR?

Also these things will probably need some kind of ranged wireless power like what Witricity is proposing to ever be used wirelessly.
