Microsoft today unveiled the HoloLens 2, the second generation of its mixed reality headset that strives to push the boundaries of what AR and VR can achieve. And it seems to have reached a breakthrough with next-gen technology that leaves the growing pains of first-generation products behind.
First things first, the HoloLens will costs an eye watering $3,500. However, that’s significantly less expensive than the first HoloLens that debuted four years ago which cost $5,000 at launch. However, as Microsoft stated on stage, it does the three things consumers have been asking for: it is more immersive, more comfortable and features industry-leading value right out of the box.
Take for instance the display that now has a field of view that is twice a big. This allows for a more immersive experience with each holographic display delivering improved content that’s like going from 720p content to 2K. According to Microsoft, the holographic density is now 47 pixels per degree.
Unfortunately, casual consumers will not get access to the new headset. For the time being, Microsoft is only selling the HoloLens 2 to companies. A way Microsoft is envisioning the HoloLens 2 being used is in factories where workers can use the headset to enhance their jobs.
While the idea of the HoloLens 2 is quite intriguing, it’ll be more so when consumers can enjoy the new technology. Until then, it’ll be a mythical device that regular people have never used.
