Unlocking the Future: MICROSOFT and the Revolution in Holographic AR Technology

Every day, new strides are made in augmented reality (AR), and even the biggest tech companies in the world are starting to sit up and take notice of what we can begin to do using this technology. Growing out of research at Stanford that could finally change the rules of the game when it comes to AR wearables, a recent study describes a game-changing development which aims to change how we use and interact with AR devices. So far, the progress of AR has been spearheaded by tech leaders such as MICROSOFT and its efforts with the HoloLens and, to a lesser extent, Google Glass. Stanford’s new AI-assisted holographic imaging technology opens up new horizons. But is it really that much better than what MICROSOFT is already doing? Let’s find out.

A New Dawn in AR Wearables

Think about it: if the prototypes now being developed at Stanford were to succeed in creating a wearable that is as thin and light, and just as comfortable and universal an accessory, as a standard pair of spectacles, that would herald their practical social utility. Indeed, the targets specified by the current Stanford team aim for just that: in the space of a couple of years, they are determined to create a device whose spatial clarity is miles ahead of the current offerings, yet thinner and lighter. In which case, we’d be looking at something with a social application very different from those awkward prototypes like the MICROSOFT HoloLens that, however powerful their capabilities, are still dogged by serious problems of bulk and a limited viewing field.

MICROSOFT's Pioneering Steps

The company has been pursuing AR for years already; indeed, HoloLens has set the standard for what AR wearables should be capable of up to now, hampered by a narrow field of view. Stanford’s prototype – despite its current limitations (11.7 degrees of gaze-contingent field of view) – points the way forward; we’d be looking at devices that deliver immersive experiences, in eyewear form factors.

The Technology Behind the Magic

At the heart of this new method is AI-assisted holographic imaging, which should decrease the physical space required to project highly detailed 3D imagery by orders of magnitude. When layered into a stack, such holographic components could provide a transformative design for AR glasses, making them noticeably more available and practical for everyday use.

Implications for MICROSOFT and Beyond

However, for the firm giants such as MICROSOFT, these Stanford discoveries might provide the impetus for innovation in their own AR solutions. Indeed, thoughtfully contrasting and coupling these advances with what MICROSOFT already offers might jumpstart AR wearables that prove to be natural extensions of how we live and work, eventually gaining consumer acceptance for broader applications in the enterprise.

MICROSOFT's Role in Shaping the AR Landscape

Since then, MICROSOFT has been a major innovator of new AR applications, from improving workplace productivity to creating new gaming experiences. So, when major shifts in AR technology are just around the corner, the company’s ongoing projects and research could very well dictate the direction of AR’s future.


MICROSOFT is a global colossus that has long since gone beyond being a software firm, and is now an architect of hardware, a cloud computing and artificial intelligence provider, among other things. And with the advent of the HoloLens, it is busy developing an AR version of the world.
