Microsoft's view of computing in the future continues with the next-generation of its mixed-reality headset, HoloLens 2. Targeted toward business use, the new headset will feature a larger field of view, new eye-tracking sensors that make hologram manipulation much more natural, and enterprise-level authentication through iris scanning with Windows Hello. Comfort has also been a big focus with an improved fit system and there's also a flip-up visor and it can still be worn with your glasses on. Other features include a 5-mic array, spatial audio, an 8MP camera with 1080p video capture, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 Compute Platform, and a 2nd generation custom-built holographic processing unit.
