Hololens at TED 2016 – Alex Kipman points towards some interesting scenarios for Hololens in education


At TED 2016 , Alex Kipman from the Microsoft Hololens team, talked about how we see the future of 3D holograms. We have talked about Hololens before – there are some great videos on the Hololens website – and we have demonstrated scenarios for Hololens in education the past. The TED presentation hinted again at what an interesting future we’re going to see when Hololens starts to be used in education.

Alex shows how Hololens will allow users to “explore a speculative digital world without screens in this fanciful demo, a mix of near reality and far-future possibility. Wearing the HoloLens headset, Alex Kipman demos his vision for bringing 3D holograms into the real world, enhancing our perceptions so that we can touch and feel digital content.”

The video from TED 2016 has just been published, and it shows some promising insights into the ways that Hololens is being used, and what the potential might be. Although the presentation wasn’t specifically about Hololens in education, the scenarios you’ll see paint some amazing ideas for how it may help teaching and learning in the future.
