    AR concept being shown?

    Edit: Looked like an RTS showing up in the living room.

    This is when my PR bollocks alarm went off. I switch it off for Apple events automatically.

    Do you know how long is the event due to last?

    We must be out of sync.

    Edit: Why does he keep momentously pausing? It's like he's waiting for constant applause or whoops. Oh he got for the free Windows upgrade announcements, haha! FREE STUFF! WOOO!

    So I am guessing they are going to show two new devices - phone/hybrid device and AR?

    2-hour show, and with Joe up on stage I wonder how much he will take. :p He can talk!

    Edit 2: He has a timer running! LOL Looks like he gets 34-mins

    Edit 3: Cortana makes a haircut joke, same thing I thought.

    They've missed a trick not having a visual Cortana model pop-up.

    Paradigm shift if it works!

    Jives with some rumors from devs that would not talk further about it. Take2, Notch come to mind.

    Hmmm.. ok. I don't recall C3PO(tm) wearing a HoloLens(tm) when playing HoloChess(tm) with Chewbacca(tm).

    Howver.. interesting.

    edit: probably should have got Robert Downey Jr to do something Iron Man-ish for this.

    No, this nerd is way better. I love Microsoft for putting their nerds on display.

    That could be so cool. One more thing to show we're living in the future.

    Impressive foveated rendering AND holographic AR AND a computer in the glasses. Though I hate wearables.

    HoloStudio to make holograms which you can "3D print" to make holograms?

    Microsoft.. DUDES! These aren't holograms by the popular definition. But AR rumour confirmed.

    This is insane. I love VR but for that I'm interested in it for games , this however is something I can use all the time during my working day.

    The real question is price. If its sub $500 then I could see it taking off and the closer they get to $100 the better it will do but if they try and go higher price it will fail.

    I still think I will get a rift before this
