What is HoloLens and what is mixed reality?

HoloLens is a holographic computer that allows you to visualize, hear and interact with virtual elements in the real world. Unlike virtual reality, with mixed reality you continue to see what surrounds you - with holograms adding and embellishing the real view.

Mixed reality, virtual reality, augmented reality: what are the differences?

Potential of HoloLens


HoloLens is completely independent: it is neither connected to a computer nor is it necessary to install sensors in order to use it.

Natural interaction

Gesture and vocal recognition let you use the HoloLens in a fluid and intuitive manner.

Spatial mapping

Thanks to its sensors and infrared cameras, HoloLens is able to scan and locate its environment.


Connect multiple HoloLens together and share the experience. This is a useful feature for business meetings.

Spatial Sound

The 3D sound system allows you to live an immersive experience.


Connect the HoloLens to your Wifi network or Bluetooth capable devices and expand your solutions.
