Augmented reality and virtual reality technology are suddenly becoming more important in a world where people can’t meet as easily as they used to. Devices like Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 seem to play an important role. Microsoft’s mixed reality news at the virtual annual Build developer conference is not surprisingly focused on HoloLens. As the company continues to slowly build larger AR cloud tools, The HoloLens 2 is now backed by 5G cards.
Greg Sullivan, Microsoft’s head of hybrid reality, describes upcoming changes, including the expensive Hololens 2 availability. Microsoft hasn’t provided specific sales figures since the Launch of the HoloLens 2 in November, but the hardware will be available in more countries this year. It will land in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan by the autumn. This summer, Microsoft will also sell HoloLens 2 in its online Microsoft store. But it’s important to note that the hardware is still for the business, not the general public.
