HoloLens Is just One Step away from Reality

The above two pictures are two different HoloLens: the first picture shows the HoloLens worn by a camera, which is used to see the full field of view of Holograms. The second one shows the supposed to be a semifinal HoloLens product.

Here is the problem: the second one has all the forms and styles for a HMD product, but also has a small field of view. The first has a satisfying field of view that everyone is looking for, but no one wants to wear it.

The bright side of the problem: THE TECHNOLOGY IS THERE, IT IS JUST NOT READY TO BE WORN.

Lets take this a little further: I would trade wear-bility for a huge field of view. If they release the first HoloLens, I would buy instantly. For the second one, I have to think again.

In any case, I think HoloLens is not far from reality.
