    So now the requirement for joining the military really will be a high KDR on CoD, then?

    It means that we will get proper VR in the close future, likewise, probably even interactive gaming you can do in free areas... house complexes and more, taking gaming to a next level.

    Re: Microsoft provides insight into US Army HoloLens IVAS use

    A number of changes to HoloLens and IVAS made through the two years design process include:

    HMD sensors had to move, so soldiers could aim rifles with cheek on stock
    The goggle rim was altered for better peripheral vision
    A chest mounted compute pack headset controller had to be rethought, as it easily broke or got gunked-up as soldiers crawled around in cover
    The mixing of HoloLens abilities plus thermal imagery, sensors, GPS technology and night vision
    Users can be aware of where other platoon members are even in dense or dark environments, and chat with integrated audio
    HoloLens can be paired with a weapon sight, so wearers can see what their weapon scope sees - when aiming around a corner, for example
    Not being funny, but how many of those should have been done before the demo units went out, they seem kinda obvious to me tbh..
    This is the start of a 'JARVIS' type HUD where it ID's people as you look at them and then pops up relivent information..

    To be fair, the hololens they started with wasn't designed with this in mind, it might not have even been the original 'military' vision for it either.

    While it might seem obvious after seeing that list of changes most of the people that worked on hololens aren't in the military and likely had no experience of 'how things work' either. I'd say the whole project is kind of a work in progress where they see 'what they can add' to the package while keeping it compact/sturdy etc.

    Imagine the situation to be in the middle of a battle and get a forced update or a Blue Screen of Death from Microsoft!
