    I wouldn't necessarily say that. While some things from the IVAS project will trickle down to HoloLens, it's entirely possible that not all of it will. They can do things for the IVAS that are impractical to do for a commercial product due to cost.

    This is similar to how things trickle down all the time from military R&D (including NASA) into the public sector, but not all of it does ... and not purely for national security reasons. The military (and NASA) are willing and able to pay for things that just wouldn't be profitable in the public sector.

    oh for sure, I'm sure that a headset that worth 180k over ten years (22B divided by 120,000 head sets) can have more bells and whistles than the base hololens could hope to have. It will be very interesting to see if they offer a IVAS 'spec' headset to commercial customers, with the larger FOV, not necessarily the other military specific stuff

    So you allocated 0% of the project budget to software and software development. Not realistic at all.
