You've got to see this crazy demo for Microsoft's ambitious new headset

You’ve already seen “Minecraft” in Microsoft’s crazy “mixed reality” headset, HoloLens. It’s very impressive!

And now, Microsoft’s got a new demo for HoloLens. It was shown off Tuesday at an event in New York City. It’s called “Project X-ray,” and it looks incredible. Here it is:

Not bad, right? We captured the whole thing! 

Let’s walk through the entire demo of “Project X-ray,” straight from Microsoft’s NYC event.

The demo started out innocently enough, with a Microsoft staffer wearing HoloLens being brought out on stage:

See that huge camera rig? It's using a combination of cameras to capture both the HoloLens user and what the user sees.

And that's how we can see these terrifying robot insects pull apart the walls and flood through:

The robots don't seem to care for this gentleman's fake apartment setup:

Beyond just shooting at robots and dodging their attacks, the man wearing HoloLens is able to command other types of attacks using his voice:

He could even pull out a fancy shield and block LASERS:

It looks like the insect-like robots THAT WANT TO MURDER YOU evolve as the game progresses. From the tiny floating guys at the start:

The full demo is called 'Project X-ray,' and it's not clear if it will become a full-on game or not.

But it's also not clear when HoloLens will launch for consumers. The development kit becomes available to developers for $3,000 in the first quarter of 2016.
