Product Overview

What is the HoloLens 2?

The HoloLens 2 is a mixed reality smart glasses developed by Microsoft. It offers an immersive experience, combining the virtual world with the real. The HoloLens 2 is the successor to the original Microsoft HoloLens. It is an untethered visor that creates a new vision and experience for computing. Microsoft hopes it brings mixed reality solutions for businesses.

What is the HoloLens?

The HoloLens is the original mixed reality system created by Microsoft. It was released in 2016, available for pre-order. The HoloLens functions as a wearable computer that has a built-in Windows 10 computer and lenses. Like the HoloLens 2, it also has Wi-Fi connectivity.

However, the HoloLens 2 has improved in many areas that the HoloLens lacked. Originally, it had a field of view of 30 degrees, a 2.5-hour battery life and was much heavier. The HoloLens 2 is much lighter and has a more ergonomic fit. It also features a 3-hour battery life and has a massive 52-degree field of view. The display has changed for the better. The HoloLens was very basic when it came to hand tracking and gesture recognition. The HoloLens 2 has improved upon this and now offers tracking in 3D space, down to the individual finger. The HoloLens 2 has filled in the gaps for what the HoloLens failed to do, or had a poor performance in.

What is the HoloLens 2 used for?

The HoloLens 2 is used for enterprise implementations. It is not designed for the average consumer, as it offers many applications and uses for businesses. Some of the following uses are:

  • Remote Assistance
  • Training & Task Guidance
  • Collaborative Visualization
  • Contextual Data Access

Some companies are using the HoloLens in conjunction with their work. A furniture company, for example, uses the HoloLens 2 to create a demo of a piece of furniture in a room as a life-sized object. You can also see a virtual wall of photos, see digital PDFs in front of you, and do many other things that bring virtual and reality together.

Microsoft HoloLens 2 also allows you to map out a world and see 3D maps of digital things in real life. This allows the user to have an immersive and instinctual experience, which can be used for many industries. Since it does not have any wires, it can be used to view 2D and 3D content from any position. It can be moved and taken with you from workplace to workplace, creating an interactive imagery for your use.

HoloLens 2 Reviews

Many HoloLens 2 reviews can be found online. Below are some quotes from publications that have reviewed the HoloLens 2.

  • "Thanks to its padded brow pad and padded back, it was a snug, comfortable fit. I was able to keep my glasses on, and the HoloLens 2 slipped right over them." - Digital Trends
  • "The best way I can describe it is like Google Maps' turn-by-turn directions for real world instructions -- or like a floating Lego manual for reality. I move my eyes over each step-by-step card that floats in the air in front of me." - Cnet
  • "That's one of the big improvements the Microsoft HoloLens 2 received, with the design being both smaller and lighter. We immediately noticed the weight difference when we put it on, and it's down to the company's new carbon fiber build." - Tech Radar

Excellent service, speedy delivery

We brought an Azure Kinect DK - which was unavailable for purchase locally. Ordering was very easy, and the thing that impressed us the most was how quickly our order was dispatched... it arrived in NZ from the US around 4 days after purchasing - which is quicker than all of the other international commerce providers. As a studio, we will definitely be using Big Apple Buddy again for any future overseas purchases.

You really want that U.S. item? Rely on BAB

Great customer service, easy to use, and fairly quick shipping to Canada. If there's an item in the U.S. that you can't obtain directly but you *must* have it, BAB is a great way to go.

When I was looking for a method to buy a laptop from Dell USA, I found Big Apple Buddy by chance on the Internet. First, I read some review about others shopping experience from this company. Then, I ordered a Dell Precision Laptop and they responded so fast. I received the order in South Korea without any problem. I am really satisfied with working with Big Apple Buddy.
