Microsoft's headset is not a virtual reality device like the Oculus Rift that immerses you into a completely separate world by feeding you with a full visual and audio input. HoloLens is an augmented reality device, which uses your surrounding environment and creates additional visual layers that you can interact with.

Early this year, Microsoft demonstrated what playing the popular game Minecraft looks like on the device, but now another mixed reality game came out and it looks fantastic. Project Xray turns any room of your house into a battlefield and you will be able to defend it from holographic robots by fighting them with a wearable holograph. After a gun appears on your hand and follows your movements, you will be able to shoot evil robots that come out of the walls of your room and dodge their attacks. Watch the incredible demo here:
