Abstract:
The HoloLens 2 is a wearable cloud-enabled computer that produces holograms—three-dimensional virtual objects. The latest generation of HoloLens allows users to see multiple holograms at once, all laid over reality, through its wide field of view. These holograms can be rotated and manipulated, while voice commands allow users to further control the device, even in loud industrial settings. Holograms can be shared among HoloLens devices or iPhones, Androids, and tablets, encouraging collaboration.
