When Microsoft announced its Hololens augmented reality headset, the company described its many potential uses, including in games and in science. Today, NASA revealed its own plans for the headset: It will be sending two of them up to the International Space Station.
Using an application called Sidekick, astronauts will use Hololens to assist in training and procedures necessary on the ISS. During day-to-day actions, the headset will provide support and guidance.
