Here’s Halo 5: Guardians streaming on Microsoft HoloLens

We’ve featured several exciting projects incorporating Microsoft’s mixed reality HoloLens headset, from collaborative industrial design to interactive car demos. But what I’m genuinely interested is how it transforms gaming.

Varun Mani, a program manager for HoloLens at Microsoft, has uploaded footage showing how the headset can stream Halo 5: Guardians from his Xbox One — giving him the ability to project the game on a screen of just about any size.

The clip is all too short: I wish Mani would’ve shown just how big the projected screen can get. Still, it’s impressive that the $3,000 HoloLens developer kit, slated to ship next year, is already capable of such technological wizardry.
