I'm excited about the Microsoft Hololens. And here's why. Virtual reality allows designers and developers to create completely new realms and experiences, include participants remotely in believable 3D environments, and even recreate events in ways that are as emotive and visceral as if you were actually there. But the Hololens isn't offering virtual reality. It's offering augmented reality; ie: way better reality. And reality is something we can share, in real places, in real time.
