Microsoft gave a new demonstration of its HoloLens holographic headset at its Build conference in San Francisco today, showing how a user at home will be able to interact with everyday apps and content while wearing the device.

It was an eye-opening demo, showing the ability to resize and transport virtual windows around a living room, and also pin virtual 3D apps to different parts of the room.

Here’s what it looked like from the stage at the event, via the Microsoft webcast.hololens6

The company announced that all Windows 10 universal apps will be able to run via the HoloLens interface in this way. It’s part of a broader effort to get developers on board with Windows 10, which also included news about the ability to easily convert iOS and Android apps to work on the new operating system.

Microsoft has yet to announce pricing and availability for the HoloLens devices, but it’s giving developers at the conference this week a chance to try it out.
