We all know that Microsoft HoloLens is very pricing and is not for the average consumer at the moment. Especially not for gaming applications. But that has not stopped developers from trying out new experiences in augmented reality with the device. Here you can see what it would be like to play Portal on the Microsoft HoloLens.
Portal is a great puzzle game and I for one really like the idea of playing the game in real space in augmented reality using the Microsoft HoloLens. This has been made possible by an independent developer KennyW.
The game is still in the concept phase and there are no puzzle levels. All you can do is make portals and play with the cube seeing the elements react to real world object. This is cool on its own but being a gamer who has already played the game you just happen to want more, if you know what I mean.
Still, see the game in augmented reality using the Microsoft HoloLens is very cool indeed and we will be seeing how this develops in the upcoming months. It is safe to assume that with the pace of advancement we are seeing in the fields of VR and AR, this will be the primary mode of gaming in the near future.
As of right now, there is not much that the Microsoft HoloLens has to offer the average consumer and the average gamer. But with time we will see more support for the device and with the price coming down in a year or two we might see this to be the next big thing in gaming.
Microsoft HoloLens does have a lot of potential and it could be a huge leap in the gaming industry. Let us know what you think about the Microsoft HoloLens.
