Microsoft Hololens Out For Pre-Orders At $3000 – Know the Details


The world of technology has been progressing in rather rapid leaps and bounds than it has ever before.

Users are now witnessing a major technological revolution and things are now happening much faster than they have ever before.

Three things are expected to define the way things work in 2016 – Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things.

Microsoft has now managed to link all three of them, as well as elements of Augmented Reality, and has come out with the Microsoft Hololens.

The Hololens comes out as a no ‘surprise’ as it has been teased time and over again in the last one year.

Reports about the development of one such device had been in the markets since quite a long time, but an official confirmation came out last year when the company officially announced the arrival of the Hololens.

The device functions on Augmented Reality, which allows the users to change the way they interact with their environment. Augmented Reality is the future of technology, and Microsoft has taken a major leap towards things.

The Pre-Orders of the Hololens have now begun and the device has been priced in at an astronomical $3000. However, despite this massive price tag, no jaws were dropped as it was expected.

Microsoft had announced this price back in October when they had said that a developers edition of the Microsoft Hololens is expected to come out in the first quarter of 2016.

Microsoft has officially stated about the following new set of specifications to be a part of the Hololens:

  • Automatic pupillary distance calibration
    • Holographic Resolution: 2.3M total light points
    • Holographic Density: >2.5k radiants (light points per radian)

Microsoft then went ahead to talk more about the device, stating officially what the Hololens is and how it functions:

“Hololens has see-through holographic lenses that use an advanced optical projection system to generate multi-dimensional full-color holograms with very low latency so you can see holographic objects in your world,” Microsoft’s Alex Kipman writes.

“The key to a great holographic experience is holograms that are light point rich, i.e., they have a high holographic density and are pinned, or anchored, to the world around you.”

With the arrival of the Hololens, things are expected to change and escalate further towards the direction of progress.
