Microsoft HoloLens 2 Apollo moon landing demo failed during Build conference

07 May 2019 4

Microsoft kicked off the Build developer conference in an awkward way which failed to impress spectators. The company tries to recreate the Apollo moon landing using HoloLens 2 which failed miserably. The failed demo was a disaster as no was expecting a failed demo from Microsoft during the live show.

Undoubtedly the HoloLens 2 technology turns the heads due to this next-gen hardware which sets new paths for the VR development. However, the failed live demo makes it look like a disaster. The original HoloLens was introduced with AR demo of Microsoft's famous Minecraft game and it quickly becomes center of the attention.

The second gen HoloLens debuted in February this year alongside the new Surface lineup PCs. It was launched at a hefty price tag of $3,500. Well, the failed demo will certainly not help Microsoft to attract buyers.

Microsoft utilized the Unreal Engine 4 to recreate the Apollo space mission. Unfortunately, the demo didn't work. The rehearsal of the HoloLens 2 demo shared by the Unreal Engine. Let's have a look at the demo which looks quite impressive. The holograms during the demo were streamed from remote PCs utilizing the pixel streaming feature of Unreal Engine 4.

Reminds me of the famous Blue Screen of Death that happened with Bill Gates years back. (Is that how it's termed?) But yes, reading about something being failed these days is a bit striking.
