Microsoft has unveiled its HoloLens technology. The HoloLens goggles enable the wearer to tap into a virtual reality world with 3D objects that can be interacted with and modified. Microsoft calls it the first untethered holographic computer.

Microsoft sees people using the HoloLens technology to plan trips, design products and play 3D interactive games. One of the photos shows a man using HoloLens to interact in a Minecraft-like world in his living room.

No release date or pricing has been announced. You can find out more about HoloLens here on Microsoft. Here is a video from Microsoft's presentation by Alan Kipman:
