Microsoft has promised to release developer kits for its mixed-reality HoloLens headset in the first quarter of this year at $3,000 a pop. For the rest of us, dramatic CGI video demos will have to suffice.
The company’s latest clip shows how HoloLens could transform your sports viewing experience, with a focus on the NFL. You could enjoy the game on a screen larger than your TV, get a top-down view of the stadium on your coffee table and see players’ holograms and key stats float around your living room.

Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
There’s clearly a long way to go before any of this becomes reality, but the company sure knows how to craft a killer promo video.
It’s previously shown off how HoloLens might help industrial designers collaborate on 3D models and how it could turn your house into a video game level. If you have a great idea for HoloLens, send it to Microsoft to turn it into (mixed) reality.
