Microsoft’s HoloLens is a pretty impressive device which runs on the Windows Holographic platform. With the HoloLens, users can use Universal Windows Apps, which means, many of the new Windows 10 apps are able to run on the HoloLens. Back in July, Microsoft showed off Microsoft Edge and some other UWP apps running on the HoloLens. Now, an internal website was spotted by Microsoft enthusiast, WalkingCat (aka h0x0d) which includes some interesting videos showing off some of the gestures for the Microsoft Edge in HoloLens.

Here’s a video showing how users would be able to scroll a web page on the HoloLens:

Microsoft has also provided written instructions for Scrolling, Drag and Zoom gestures, which are listed below:

Scrolling:

  • Choose the Scroll Tool at the top of the browser
  • Gaze at the page, then Air tap and hold
  • While holding, move your hand up or down to scroll

Dragging:

  • Choose the Drag Tool at the top of the browser
  • Gaze at the page, then Air tap and hold
  • While holding, move your hand to drag

Zooming:

  • Choose the Zoom Tool at the top of the browser
  • Gaze at the page, then Air tap and hold
  • While holding, move your hand up or down to zoom

The website links to some other web pages which simply include a “Coming Soon” message. Interestingly enough, WalkingCat found a link which apparently redirects to an internal site “http://holodocs” which isn’t live just yet. Nonetheless, tell us what you think of the gestures on HoloLens in the comment section below.
