With the news that Microsoft Holographic is coming to more devices, fans of mixed reality will have even more options. Microsoft already has the HoloLens and with this latest news devices such as the HTC Vive will be able to interact with mixed reality on the back of Microsoft Holographic.
There’s an incredible video in the Microsoft blog post that shows what something like this means for mixed reality. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that mixed reality is going to grow quickly. It’s a major form factor and this type of device that is gaining serious momentum.
While augmented reality and virtual reality have different strengths and weaknesses, both have roles in the future of mixed reality. From the Microsoft to the Oculus to the HTC, many companies are trying to sprint to the forefront of an emerging field of tech.
While I personally might prefer a HoloLens for an everyday mixed reality view, others may prefer the immersive world that the HTC Vive places you in. Even less expensive VR devices can create a one of a kind experience for watching videos and content.
