Transforming education with holograms and Windows 10

Introducing the revolutionary Microsoft HoloLens! Recently announced, the HoloLens will be the world's most advanced holographic computing platform. The HoloLens brings high-definition holograms to life as they seamlessly integrate with your physical places, spaces and things.

The HoloLens is destined to be a great educational tool. It will provide a new medium to express creativity, as users are able to design and shape holograms and more effectively visualise and share ideas. Experience history by taking students on a virtual 3D tour of the Pyramids of Giza or the Colosseum in Rome; create virtual worlds with Minecraft in 3D; simulate a dangerous science experiment; and collaborate with other students across the globe in virtual face-to-face interactions. There is so much potential in the HoloLens!

All of this innovation is being enabled by Windows 10, the new generation of Windows! Windows 10 has numerous new and exciting features, which will make all aspects of work and life simpler. This new operating system is grounded in Microsoft's vision of creating a more personal form of computing, which makes living in this mobile world easier, safer and more reliable.

We'd like to take this chance to inform you of the free upgrade offer! Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 for qualified new or existing Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices that upgrade in the first year! And even better: once a qualified Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft will continue to keep it up to date for the supported lifetime of the device, keeping it more secure, and introducing new features and functionality over time – for no additional charge.
