Microsoft Teases HoloLens 2

“Microsoft is expected to announce the next generation HoloLens headset at an already announced event on February 24, and the company’s doing a bit more to stoke the flames,” reports TechCrunch. One of the key people behind the original HoloLens, Alex Kipman, tweeted a video showing “vague forms of chips and cables [that] take shape out of melted ice, rocks and air,” reports TechCrunch. From the report: The original headset was ahead of the mixed reality wave, but now that AR is starting to catch on all over the industry, the timing could be right for a big second-generation launch. Reports have suggested a Qualcomm 850 chip and new Project Kinect Sensors. The headset is also said to be cheaper and smaller than its developer-focused predecessor, which could put Microsoft in prime position to push augmented reality forward.
