Video shows HoloLens being used to play Halo 5, without looking at TV

It's not the future until you start a game on a console, and move away, continuing to play it while wearing some AR goggles.


Microsoft's HoloLens impressed everyone that saw it in action. And while the device's early iterations are not meant for us, the game was demoed using Minecraft!

Minecraft is child's play, though. So, what if you could play Halo 5 on that thing? While you can't (not yet) move things around in the environment the same way you can in Minecraft, Microsoft project manager Varun Mani proves you kinda don't need to.

In the video below he demonstrates the device's power. He starts Halo 5 on a console, which is connected to a TV normally, and is streaming the game to the AR glasses. The results are best seen in action.
