A 3D Model of Microsoft's HoloLens is the Closest You Can Get for Now

As we all stop caring about 3D TVs, smartwatches, and other recent tech fads, the attention now turns to head-worn interactive displays. And if you think Microsoft's new HoloLens has what it takes to challenge the Oculus Rift, here's your chance to look over the hardware—at least a 3D interactive model of it—courtesy of the folks at Sketchfab.

You can't actually try it on to see what all the fuss is about, but the 3D model includes a bunch of interactive annotations so you can check out all the technology that Microsoft has packed into the HoloLens, including Kinect-like sensors and video cameras so others can see what you're looking at too. If you're desperate to get your hands on one after pawning your Google Glass, this should at least help tide you over until Microsoft finally makes them available to the public. Or to convince you that maybe you don't want this on your head.[Sketchfab]
