Microsoft has unveiled a developer edition of its Mixed Reality (MR) headset HoloLens 2. Priced at $3,500, the device will have software support for the “Unreal Engine 4 SDK (software development kit)”.
The kit will include the HoloLens 2 hardware and Azure credits alongside free trials of Unity Pro and Unity PiXYZ Plugin for CAD data. Microsoft still hasn’t announced a commercial release date for the HoloLens 2. The company showcased the device in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The HoloLens 2 has a field of view that’s more than double of the first-generation HoloLens. The device is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 850.
HoloLens 2 contains eye-tracking sensors that make interacting with holograms even more natural.
The new dial-in fit system makes the headset comfortable to wear for longer periods.
