The Hololens headset has won over a huge number of people who are eager to try the device, but details explaining how it works have been quite scarce.
However, a bit more information about the HoloLens leaked during a recent event, thanks to Bruce Harris, a technical enthusiast at Microsoft.
So what more has be revealed about the headset? The device will offer roughly five and a Half Hours of battery life when you are working on Word documents or email, and about two and a half hours if you are using it for highly intensive work that involves detailed renderings.
In a video, Harris confirms that the HoloLens does not get warm because it was built to dissipate heat, and that the device has no option for any wired connection. Although, the device can connect to anything with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity, includes 3D audio and will only offer English language support for the first version.
Harris also addressed questions regarding the HoloLens’ field of view. He explained that the experience is like having a 15-inch monitor about 30cm away from your face.
In December last year, Microsoft made the HoloLens available to be tested and experienced by the public. But the fact that you have to pay about R50 000 for the device, reveals that it is really more for developers rather than the general consumer market.
The HoloLens is coming soon – keep an eye out!
