Microsoft on Wednesday announced the award recipients of the Microsoft HoloLens Academic Research Grant Program, which invited academic institutions to submit their ideas to harness the power of Microsoft HoloLens and push the boundaries of possible applications for holographic computing. The winners will receive $100,000 and two Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition devices with which to conduct their research.

“From leveraging HoloLens to correct for visual impairment to mobilizing mixed reality in the classroom for trade-based education, the submissions truly capture the spirit of the program and point to the scope of what’s possible with Microsoft HoloLens,” writes Alex Kipman, technical fellow for new device categories in the Operating System Group.
