Preorder Microsoft HoloLens 2 right here
Prepare to console your wallet.
Hot off the heels of announcing its new HoloLens 2, Microsoft has opened up preorders for the augmented reality headset. You can currently preorder HoloLens 2 for $3,500 directly from Microsoft.
However, as HoloLens is still very much a headset geared at enterprise uses, you won't be able to simply order it off of Microsoft's website. Rather, the company is requiring individuals and businesses to request preorders through a form, with a followup from a salesperson.
HoloLens 2 packs a number of major improvements over its predecessor. The headset runs on a Snapdragon 850 processor, meanin Microsoft has made the jump from the x86 chipset in the previous headset to the ARM platform. In addition, it now sports improved hand tracking and built-in eye tracking for interacting with holograms. It's also been redesigned, sporting a carbon fiber build and additional padding for added comfort.
If you're interested in the HoloLens 2, you can register your interest in a preorder at Microsoft now.
HoloLens Part Deux
HoloLens, but better.
HoloLens 2 takes everything that made the original great and turns it up to 11. With a new carbon fiber body, extra padding, eye tracking, and a wider field of view, the headset should have no problem finding success among developers and firstline workers.
