HoloLens! Microsoft wants us to have a HoloDeck!

Microsoft is going the holodeck route with something called HoloLens.
These are holographic glasses and they'll be coming out around the same time as Windows 10. Man, this sure looks awesome and cool and probably also janky and questionably useful! We'll find out first-hand soon though... (We hope)



Hololens is no Oculus. First, it's untethered. Everything is in the headset; that includes a CPU, a GPU, and something Microsoft is calling a Holographic Processor. HPU? Also, this isn't about throwing you into some VR screen-in-front-of-your-face cave. Hololens is about putting virtual things all over your real life, like Google Glass but somehow uglier and bigger but also better better. Exactly the experience we're hoping to see with the mysterious Magic Leap.

As a Windows 10 device, the Hololens should also be able to run any app that a Windows 10 PC or phone will be able to, so long as there's some holomagic UI programmed in. That could help make it easier for cool shit to come to these insane goggles whenever it is that they launch. For now, we're stuck with basic tech demos.

Got bored of the Original Skyrim? Check this out!

After many years have passed from the Release Date of TES V (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim), you might have become sick and tired of the same ole' map and the guards taunting you with the sweetroll robbery. Some of you might have even uninstalled the game! Well, if you have skyrim on PC, re-install it pretty soon, because this mod will grant you a whole new game.

It's possible to make the Xbox One Kinect work for PC, here's how

The Xbox One Kinect isn't officially set up to run on a PC, but a group of intrepid hackers have figured out the exact kind of tweaking the hardware needs in order to do so.

Hacker and developer Chris Gallizzi, who last fall was working to get the Xbox One controller running with Windows 7, has cracked the code to getting the Kinect hooked up to the PC. The video above shows Gallizzi with fellow developer Jesse Aragon demonstrating their workaround, which requires a custom cable.

The pair plan to release the cable at retail through their company, gaming accessory maker Hyperkin Inc.
Microsoft released a dedicated PC version of the new Kinect's software development kit earlier this week. You can grab it for $199.
