#IWSG When Fiction Merges With Reality
Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 on July 29th, 2015. I am excited. Anyone who has a legal copy of Windows 8, 8.1., 8 RT, and Windows 7 can upgrade to Windows 10 for a the first year free, after that you will have to purchase it. It is packed full of new features and an easier user interface. The one feature that really caught my attention is the Holo feature. The first untethered Hololens is slated to be released too, now how cool is that? I write fantasy and sci-fi, so I am so excited that holo is coming to the public. A piece of Star Trek, so to speak, merged into the reality of our daily world. Microsoft already has some companies that are working and partnering with them to help build and improve it. You can see that video on their site right under the lead picture with a few details about that. Here is the link to the HoloLens site–>Microsoft HoloLens. https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-hololens/en-us
Check out these videos below I found on YouTube, including a live demonstration.

My biggest fear now is that my imagination won’t be able to keep up with reality—Nah, but isn’t it wonderful to watch the imagination come to life and improve the world around us. I can’t wait until I can go to the Holo Deck just like we go to the movies now, or even have a home Holo Theater. OH,oh or until we can say, “Beam Me Up Scotty!”
I fear I’m distracted, lol, not just by Microsoft, but by life in general. I have not written much in the month of May, so I need to get back to it.
