There are immersion advancements across the board including in the visual display system. Holograms now are even more vibrant and realistic. The company has doubled the field of view in HoloLens 2 while retaining the industry-leading holographic density of 47 pixels per degree of sight.
 
HoloLens 2 contains a new display system that works at low power. The new version will enable direct manipulation of holograms with the same instinctual interactions one uses with physical objects in the real world. Moreover, HoloLens 2 contains eye-tracking sensors that make interacting with holograms even more natural.
 
"Building on the unique capabilities of the original HoloLens, HoloLens 2 is the ultimate intelligent edge device. And when coupled with existing and new Azure services, HoloLens 2 becomes even more capable, right out of the box", wrote the company.
 
The HoloLens 2 headset is priced at $3500, which is $1500 less than the price of the first HoloLens device Microsoft released more than four years ago. The company is also offering a subscription option for $125 per month.
