What it is:
As cool as the HoloLens is, it's best for sterile, safe spaces. This sensor-filled smart headset/ hard hat is the industrial equivalent, and comes with thermal vision, data visualization capabilities, guided work instructions, and ability for a remote expert to see your POV and guide you along. It's the kind you'd put on to install or perform repairs on critical equipment, or possibly to fight crime. ($15,000 for dev kit)
Why it's a great gift:
Planning a big project in the oil and gas, manufacturing, construction and architecture industries? The Developer's Edition wouldn't just be a gift to your field engineers, but the company as a whole. The Smart Helmet can not only relay instructions, but could warn you if a step has been missed or something doesn't seem right. Siemens, Autodesk, and Parker Hannifin are a few of the early adopters so far.
