Magic Leap just did a blog post which seems to confirm they are working on a lightfield hmd.  They really go overboard on the flowery language...and I am really not sure lightfield should have been trademarked.
But still, exciting stuff.

"Using a vast collection of Go moves from expert players—about 30 million moves in total—DeepMind researchers trained their system to play Go on its own. But this was merely a first step. In theory, such training only produces a system as good as the best humans. To beat the best, the researchers then matched their system against itself. "

I thought it was interesting reading over the "general public" submissions Microsoft has been getting for Hololens applications. Picked out a few of my favorites.

I wrote a short article on using mirrors for "Skype-like" communication with HMDs.

Seemed a fairly obvious idea, but not sure yet anyone's taking advantage of it.

Microsoft is looking for ideas for Hololens apps.
I submitted two (rather boring) ones;
https://microsoftstudios.com/hololens/shareyouridea/idea/generic-qr-code-to-3d-model-linking-standard/

https://microsoftstudios.com/hololens/shareyouridea/idea/buttons-for-everything/

I think they might be useful though.
One app that I feel should be either built in, or at startup option default. Essentially a app that can read a QR code containing a URL to a model, and display the model tracked to that code as if …

Interesting stuff.
I wonder if there was consideration  to also have a "beacon-less" implementation as well? If a Google server is there as a option - could not the server just associate a gps position with the physical web url? 
This would work for fixed things. For moving things, maybe a QR code standard or even a "image <> physical url" look up standard could also follow. (I appricate that last ones much harder)

Not that beacons themselves arnt useful - especially if they can work optionally without a "look up" server. I can just see "casual use" for data association with physical things becoming a big thing too - linking any print our, magazine, or poster with data without needing significant effort or custom software.

Little advert I made for a website I made.
 
A little advert I made for our fanficmaker.com website.
Thought we would release it now, after we had a fairly big update last week.

Technical details;
Animating writing is kinda tricky to do. In this case I used a particle effect which laid down upwards facing sprites of the actual writing which aligned to the page. It would have been better if I made a perfect path for the pen that literally drew the letters, but that would have take me far too long to animate, and Id rather spend more time improving the website itself.
All assets were made by myself as well - hence the human hand not being as detailed as it could be.

Lastly, humor wise, I wish I came up with a better name at the end. I just had writers block so I wrote Smith. Perhaps "Yours...Larry Page" would have been more funny.

Does Google Plus only have a fixed amount of posts you can see now?
I am using the old G+ still and I swear my infinite scroll is no longer infinite - just about 4/5 screens then it stops.

I submitted a few more ideas to Microsofts Hololens idea pool;
https://microsoftstudios.com/hololens/profile/thomaswrobel0001/#contributions
I really need to come up with some more exciting ones, all my ideas so far are rather boring practical stuff.

+Thomas Wrobel it now has dancing, singing, poetry reciting dwarves that will argue with eachother over ethics and values, convince each other, write scolarly books about it, and then they go to the temple to worship, except they don't actually ever get to the actual worshipping because of a bug that prevents them from choosing a subactivity of worshipping, leaving them in perpetual anxiety over their relationship with their god.
