Could The Microsoft 'HoloLens' Change The Face Of EDM?

The Microsoft HoloLens is a device, much like your mobile phone, built by collaborators all over the world that literally allows you to virtually interact with your surroundings. For those technologically inclined, this is the beginning of an exciting and interesting era. For those who shy away from the digital world, this could be a terrifying thought; it is essentially a device like this unquestionably suggests the end of human interaction all together. 

While the possibilities of how the device can be used are seemingly endless, this technology has the possibility to change the face of electronic music forever. 

For producers, this means being able to produce music anywhere, anytime. For DJs, this could mean being able to virtually experience a crowd while DJing in the comfort of your own home. For festival goers and music lovers alike, this device has the potential to grant the ability to experience music in a way that is currently unparralelled to anything else. 

While both exciting and daunting, there is no knowing what impact this gadget means for the future - all we can say is for now, enjoy the current state of electronic music, because things are about to change in a big way.
