Microsoft took time during today's Windows 10 Devices event to give the audience a more in-depth look at what its new HoloLens AR system is capable of. Minds were blown, jaws were dropped and more than a few digital robots were blown to smithereens during the 8-minute demo.

The game is called Project X-Ray. Microsoft developed it in-house as an experiment in "mixed-reality entertainment" and involves using the HoloLens controller as a ray gun to blast digital enemies which emerge from the room's walls. Running around your living room while wearing a $3,000 headset (what Microsoft is reportedly planning to charge developers) probably isn't the safest of indoor activities, but dang this game looks insanely fun regardless.
