This year (2016), Microsoft will release a large update for Windows 10. The Redstone update will "change everything" (Scott Hanselman (@shanselman) March 17, 2016) and we are all "gonna freak out" (Rich Turner (@richturn_ms) March 16, 2016) about it.
The Redstone update finds its name in the recently aquired Minecraft. Which is a block that can connect blocks together. With these blocks it even is possible to create a simple clock or computer. Redstone blocks work just like binairy: on & off (1 & 0).
There are a lot of rumours of what the update will bring. Some say the update will feature apps that can be used on all Microsoft devices. Making transition between devices seamless. Other say this update will feature a development for Windows apps. Another rumour suggests that Redstone will feauture a development tool for the HoloLens. Which is a device to "transform your world with holograms" - Microsoft (2016).
It is very likely that Microsoft will implement the HoloLens into Windows 10 and that they will release a tool for developers to create awesome hologram based apps. Since their Development Edition ships at March 30th, which is on schedule with the Redstone update. The HoloLens is the best device developed by Microsoft since Xbox.
The aquisition of Minecraft, the development of HoloLens and Windows Redstone update may be connected. The name of the update and recent videos of Microsoft show Minecraft being played on the HoloLens.
