Microsoft explains how its augmented reality headset HoloLens is going to work

HoloLensMicrosoftHoloLens has no physical input and is controlled by gestures.

Leaked documents from Microsoft explain how to use its augmented reality headset HoloLens. The set of videos and written instructions show how a user would scroll, drag an item, and zoom in or out using hand gestures.

Controlling a device that has no physical input will take users time to learn and Microsoft is clearly looking to get the first users adjusted quickly.

Microsoft previously let developers and employees show off apps and games running on HoloLens, including “Halo 5: Guardians,” Netflix and “Candy Crush.”
