Microsoft has revealed a new HoloLens 2 Development Edition, offering coders a swifter way to get into mixed reality app and experience creation. The package is based around HoloLens 2, the second-generation of augmented reality headset which Microsoft announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier in the year.
Smaller, lighter, and more comfortable than the original HoloLens, the updated version also improves on its functionality. Microsoft has expanded the mixed reality field of view, for example, so that digital objects can occupy more of the real-world scene. Higher resolution displays, meanwhile, along with new sensors were also added.
