This year is expected to be a major year when it comes to the world of technology. Many major improvements and updates are expected to be made this year, and companies across the planet have been showing off their latest devices.
Microsoft has been a name which is gearing up for a big year ahead, and much is expected from them going forward. The year is expected to be the year when the world takes a major leap towards the future.
With Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and Internet of Things gaining steam, 2016 is expected to be a year which will showcase many improvements. One major improvement from Microsoft and a major step forward b them towards the world of technology is that of the introduction of Microsoft Hololens.
We first saw the Hololens being openly talked about at the October event where Microsoft talked about the future of their devices and unveiled the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, as well as the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book devices, along with the Microsoft Band 2.
The company announced at that event that they intend to release the Microsoft Hololens sometime next year, and that it will be out for pre-orders by Q1 2016.
The Microsoft Hololens is now out for pre-order officially, and it has been priced at an astronomical $3000. However, the high price of the device is not much of a shocker, as the company had already announced this.
However, the device is now out for pre-orders for developers, and readers must keep in mind that this is not a consumer launch and it is meant only for the devs to tinker around with. The consumer version of the Hololens is expected to launch late next year or in early 2018.
However there has been a lot of early criticism that surrounds the Microsoft Hololens. Developers and insiders who have had a hands-on experience of the device have been commenting that the Hololens experience is like viewing a 15 inch screen from a distance of 2 feet.
The same sources have indicated that the battery life of the device is quite low, and the device lasts up to 3 hours when fully charged.
The device is quite different from most other modern-day devices, as it is an augmented reality device, and not a virtual reality device like the rest.
Microsoft Hololens is expected to change the way the users react with their environment and is now gearing up for major changes with the Hololens technology.
