Microsoft HoloLens, the mixed reality headset is now available for preorder in the UK, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany and New Zealand. Microsoft is pitching HoloLens as a tool to communicate, create and colloborate more easily than ever before. The HoloLens is available for pre-order in each of these countries starting today.
HoloLens is the most craziest thing from Microsoft in the recent times. While most consumers are yet to get acquinted with virtual reality, the HoloLens projects objects on a real world instead of projecting objects on a virtual world. As Microsoft’s Alex Klipman calls it, “HoloLens is a more personal way of interacting with technology.” Microsoft is now allowing developers and commercial enterprises in UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand to preorder HoloLens and develop contents for its holographic computer.
Microsoft HoloLens was first introduced in January 2015 as the world’s first self-contained holographic computer. With HoloLens, Microsoft brought holograms into real world as a communication tool.
In March 2016, Microsoft shipped HoloLens to developers in the United States and Canada. Since then, Microsoft’s HoloLens has been used innovatively by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs, Volvo, architectural firm Trimble, Cleveland Clinic, Autodesk, etc.
