Microsoft's HoloLens mixed reality headset is a unique tool not just in the way it functions, but in its design as well. Now, HoloLens has received a bit of formal recognition for the latter thanks to a special award from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA).
At the 37th annual International Design Excellence Awards (IDSA IDEA) for 2017, HoloLens took home the Best in Show Award. HoloLens beat out hundreds of other entries from 54 countries around the world, having received the top "special award" by a panel of judges made up of more than two dozen global design experts. HoloLens joins dozens of other products — including Surface Studio and Surface Dial — that received Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards from the panel, a list of which you can find at the IDSA website.
A HoloLens successor is already in the works, with Microsoft having recently revealed that it will sport its own dedicated AI coprocessor along its main processing unit. Don't expect a HoloLens 2 to land any time soon, however; a recent reported product roadmap shakeup indicates that a HoloLens followup might not arrive until 2019.
