AR And HR; HoloLens 2 and Surface Hub 2S

Source: The Register AR And HR; HoloLens 2 and Surface Hub 2S

Microsoft’s Sequels

Two updated products which did we did not cover as part of the Surface event are worth taking a look at, a new AR headset a and smart whiteboard.  The HoloLens 2 has twice the field of view as the original model and a much better weight balance compared to the front heavy original model.  They have kept the same eye tracking to let you scroll through holographic-like text projected on the headset and the Kinect motion tracking was good enough that The Register were able to effectively hit the right keys in a piano demonstration.

The  Surface Hub 2S is a 29.2 x 43.2 x 3.0″ smart whiteboard with a resolution of 3840 x 2560, powered by an Intel Core i5 with HD620 graphics.  While you won’t be gaming on it, it will handle video conferencing brilliantly as well as allowing you to show off your latest PowerPoints in style.  The whiteboard style marker you can use for real time annotation was described as a bit chunky, which may help prevent it from going wandering. 

Check them both out at The Register.

The Register got its claws on both the recently released Surface Hub 2S and the still-waiting-in-the-wings HoloLens 2 at Microsoft's Future Decoded event. The question is, are the pricey collaborative gizmos any good?
