Okay, maybe that was a misleading title. I can’t tell you everything, as that would negate your purpose in the universe.

What is Everything? Everything is a lightweight search utility which enables you to find anything you might have lost on your computer’s harddrive.
Now, I know what I’d be thinking if somebody told me this – I have Windows 10, which has a convenient search feature built in!
That’s great, in theory, but not in practice. There are some key problems with this search function which sent me hunting for a better solution.
“I’m going to try Hololens next Friday,” I told a friend in one of my computer science classes.
“To try what?”
“I have an appointment at the Microsoft Store today,” I announce to some friends at breakfast. A few raise their eyebrows.
“I’m going to try Hololens.”
“Is it like, holograph?” another pipes in.
I do not roll my eyes, but I get very close to doing so.
Apparently nobody knows what Hololens is.

In a nutshell, Hololens is Microsoft’s take on Augmented Reality. That is, Hololens integrates virtual three dimensional objects with your physical surroundings which yields a “mixed reality” of physical and virtual objects.
Last Friday, I demoed the Hololens at Microsoft’s fancy new store on 5th Avenue.
