IF YOU GET 3,500 USD (about 2,730) by burning a hole in your pocket, you can now spend it using the Microsoft HoloLens 2 headset.
Microsoft announced on Thursday that its second generation AR headset had started shipping to pre-order customers – two months later than expected – in the United States, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and UK.
Once the pre-orders were filled, Microsoft announced that it would start shipping the portable clothing worn by other customers.
It's probably not for you, because Microsoft is targeting Justice Dredd– match styles in very crowded types of businesses; When we hustled HoloLens 2 at MWC earlier this year, our demonstration of the helmet was focused on repairing an aircraft's landing gear, rather than blasting zombies.
However, at $ 3,500, the HoloLens 2 might still seem a fairly abrupt proposition for even the wealthiest businesses. But the headset is equipped with a set of futuristic sensors, an improved notch and a brand new carbon fiber case that would have "more than tripled" the comfort of the device.
Microsoft has also added full-fledged second generation HoloLens gesture tracking, a major improvement over the original, which means that you can manipulate virtual elements as with real objects. This is due to the integrated AI holographic co-processor, which is associated with a Snapdragon 850 computing engine.
When it comes to software, HoloLens 2 is the first Windows Core OS device to go on sale. It ships with the 1903 version of Windows Holographic, which Microsoft says is more secure, faster, and offers new UX experiences.
