Microsoft teams up with Volvo

Microsoft campusVolvo and Microsoft have formed a partnership that will allow people test drive motor cars using augmented reality.

Volvo said it will introduce Microsoft HoloLens to its sales outlets in 2016 to show off its cars and to even test drive systems.

The HoloLens will let people see safety features incorporated into Volvo cars.

Microsoft is pushing HoloLens for all it’s worth and is set to introduce $3,000 software development kits (SDKs) in early 2016.

It wants to capture more corporate customers as it seeks to expand its business beyond operating systems and other software.

While Volvo’s current system lets people look at the vehicle full size using the HoloLens, Volvo plans to develop tools to let people sit in a real car and take an augmented reality test drive.
