Microsoft HoloLens Bound for Space - Digits - WSJ

Presumably for more than zero-gravity Minecraft experiments

"Microsoft is riding a wave of buzz for HoloLens, its upcoming (but no one knows when or at what price) augmented reality headgear. Now NASA is sending HoloLens into orbit.

Microsoft and NASA, both of which could use a little whiz bang, announced Thursday a project called Sidekick, that will pair HoloLens with astronauts on board the International Space Station. The headgear is intended to “provide virtual aid to astronauts working off the Earth, for the Earth,” NASA says. Two HoloLens devices are slated to blast off in a few days in a resupply payload bound for the space station."
