New HoloLens teaser
Microsoft is anticipated to disclose a brand new model of its HoloLens headset at Cell World Congress later this month. The corporate has an occasion scheduled for February 24, and that date is being promoted within the relatively mysterious video printed by HoloLens’ creator Alex Kipman.
The deliberate 2019 launch of the next-generation headset was leaked final yr. Codenamed Sydney, the brand new mannequin is anticipated to be lighter, extra comfy, and sport a greater show. The sensors are up to date (prone to one thing near the Venture Kinect for Azure standalone sensor), and Microsoft has confirmed that it’s going to embrace an up to date Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) with AI acceleration capabilities. The processor is believed to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850, changing the Intel Atom of the first-generation unit.
This comes as Microsoft has bought out of unique HoloLens models. Neither the developer equipment nor the industrial model is available for purchase.
The brand new HPU had its personal little teaser video, too.
