        1. @adiwan Ofcourse there isn't, I would be surprised if there was. Still I remember the tech demo.

          **does a quick search**

          1. @drinkingpony No sane person buys a Hololens for oneself. The Hololens 1 is a tech demo for itself. Limited interaction opportunities (a single hand gesture or a button on a remote) (it has bluetooth but there is no standard input device) and a very limited field of view, and it is hugely expensive. The Hololens 2 fixes a lot of problems by almost doubling the field of view and offering full hand tracking within the field of view. It has to be determined how good it performs and if it is affordable at all. So far the industry shows more interest in these products than normal mortal consumers. I don't think that it will change anytime soon.

              HAH ! Knew it ! I know someone who owes me a party favour now...

              Well I guess that solves all of my questions.

              1. @drinkingpony Haha. How comes? I only know someone I studied with and was super enthusiastic about the Hololens and bought it for himself for playing around (as in programming with it). I'd say he was a sane guy and quite intelligent so I think that was a purchase with more promise for the future. As for non-programmers it'd be definitely insane.

                1. @adiwan Well he is a programmer alright, but also a minecraft nut.

                  I just checked and there is actually some dust on his Hololens, cus he has it on display in his bookcase.

                  Then again he also has various occulus things and pretty much spends his time with all out of the box thingies.
