Microsoft-Hololens-2-Headset

Looking like a streamlined convertible version of a Starship Troopers combat helmet, the Hololens 2 mixed reality headset also brings a bit of Minority Report into our world. A much-improved follow-up to the clunky original Hololens, the new headset provides both improved and more intuitive manual holographic manipulation and voice command for mixed hologram and physical environment photos and videos. What you see through the transparent holographic lenses’ extended field of view looks, moves, and operates more naturally than before thanks to state-of-the-art eye-tracking technology, two-handed manipulation, and enhanced speech processing command and control. The more ergonomic headset fits over your glasses, and the visor moves out of the way when not needed. You can also log in automatically using your eyes via Windows Hello. Whether for architecture, brain surgery, or other highly detailed occupational requirements, the Hololens 2 shows us the future of mixed reality manipulation, and it looks promising.
