Microsoft Holographic Near-Eye Displays

Microsoft is developing holographic display glasses. Though under development, the potential uses for these are tremendous.  Actual Microsoft Research site.  (I’m not sure why ZDNET is calling it a potential smart-phone killer.  That doesn’t make sense to me. -Adam)

 

X-Men:  The Gifted debuts on Fox this fall!

Two ordinary parents take their family on the run from the government when they discover that their children have mutant abilities, and join an underground community of mutants who have to fight to survive

The Orville
