  1. The potential for the Hololens was recently showcased by a fan creation. Abhishek Singh recreated the infamous World 1-1 from Super Mario Bros. using the Unity 3 engine and then tried it out in a very public location: Central Park in New York City. Singh donned the very famous plumber's iconic outfit and a headset to walk the level in real life. Goombas and green pipes sprawled out on the trail. Although Singh walked around some of the articles, he still jumped for mushrooms, stomped Goombas and leaped over trippy looking gaps. When consuming the mushrooms, the world shrank in reaction. People in the area didn't seem too concerned about a real-life Mario hopping around. This could be viewed as a small experiment in augmented reality's impact in real life perhaps? What retro games should be made in augmented reality? Would you play the Hololens in public? View full article

  3. Microsoft held a two-hour press conference today centered around Windows 10 and what they envision for the future of the operating system. Also, they announced holograms. Holo-freakin'-grams. As you might imagine, two hours of a corporation revealing new software and hardware is a lot to parse through. Here are the highlights as relate to the gaming world: Windows 10 will include a Game DVR function for Windows games, modeled after the Xbox One's DVR capabilities. While third-party software already exists to provide that same functionality, this service will be free and possibly run more efficiently than what's currently available. Designed to offer more opportunities to game developers, the upcoming DirectX 12 consumes half the power of DirectX 11 and offers improved performance on existing hardware. This extend to mobile devices, which will now be able to run more intensive programs without trouble. Windows 10 PCs and Xbox Ones will be able to play with each other online via cross-play functionality. Xbox One owners will be able to stream their games to any Windows 10 device in their home. Microsoft unveiled their hologram initiative: HoloLens. The HoloLens is a head-mounted computer with a variety of sensors that allows it to "see" what its user sees and overlay digital data via the built-in HUD. It includes a third processor built specifically to help it interpret holographic space. The pres conference included a live demonstration of the HoloLens and how it can be used to design digital objects. They announced that HoloLens currently runs Skype, Minecraft, and will be used as early as July for scientists working with the Mars rover. Honestly, that is a lot of really cool information, but it comes with so many questions. Will game DVR functionality be as curtailed as it is on Xbox One? What are the limits to game streaming? Will players be able to stream Destiny to their PCs from their Xbox Ones? Will cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10 PC be universal or a feature of some games, but not others? Obviously, HoloLens is the most intriguing, but a with most new technology, it is best to treat it with a grain of salt before it has had a chance to prove itself. As cool as the concept of the device is, remember the troubles people have had with Kinect for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. This could be a revolutionary step forward in computing, or it could be remembered as one of those goofy gizmos that never really got off the ground. In the meantime... HOLOGRAMS! AWESOME!
