As Julia White (Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Azure) said:
"Since the release of HoloLens in 2016 we have seen mixed reality transform the way work gets done. We have unlocked super-powers for hundreds of thousands of people who go to work every day. From construction sites to factory floors, from operating rooms to classrooms, HoloLens is changing how we work, learn, communicate and get things done.
Today, we are proud to introduce the world to Microsoft HoloLens 2."
The newest version of Microsoft's augmented reality headset is designed to help workers of all types better do their jobs.
Microsoft announced the $3,500 HoloLens 2 Sunday in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, an annual event for the mobile industry.
The company demonstrated a variety of possible workplace uses across a range of industries. One demonstration featured a creative team for a toy company collaborating in real time in a virtual conference room. Other demonstrations showed auto manufacturing, industrial equipment repair and medical procedures that were all aided by the augmented reality technology.
Users who wear a HoloLens headset see the world around them, but with virtual graphics overlaid. The images often integrate with real surfaces and objects — imagine a virtual cup of coffee appearing to rest on a real table.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told CNN Business in an exclusive interview Monday that the new device will be more comfortable than the previous version, which was released in 2016.
The second generation device also has much higher resolution graphics and a wider field of view.
"That field of view is going to make a huge difference," Nadella said.
