Microsoft offers researchers $500K and HoloLens development kits to make holographic computing useful

Microsoft today announced a request for proposals for academic research on possible applications of “holographic computing” — the sort of augmented reality that Microsoft’s HoloLens headset can offer.

Microsoft has come up with a few potential areas of exploration, like data visualization, interactive art, human-computer interaction, and and psychology. But the company wants help from academics, and to that end it will give out $100,000 and two HoloLens development kits for the five best proposals from U.S. researchers.
