Microsoft-HoloLens-RGB-640x360

The good people at GameInformer are reporting that Microsoft is indeed bringing their augmented reality project entitled HoloLens to this year’s E3. While we weren’t expecting this, I am extremely excited to see this product as it looks as though it’s a device straight out of the future. If you’re eager to hear more about this interesting new technology you won’t have to wait long as June is right around the corner.

In addition to releasing a new YouTube channel for the device, Microsoft’s revamped HoloLens website confirmed that this augmented reality headset would be showcased at E3 this year.

Count us in Microsoft. So much potential!
