Microsoft, in its official blog, states,
“In welcoming these six new countries, October 12, 2016 marks another major milestone for us. Each of these moments bring us closer to a more personal way of interacting with technology. They empower us to go further together, making it possible for people to communicate, create and collaborate more easily than ever before.”
On January 21, 2015, the company introduced Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first and only self-contained holographic computer.
On March 30, 2016, Microsoft shipped HoloLens in the United States and Canada, and invited developers as well as organizations to step away from the 2D confines of monitors and pixels, so as to explore what is possible when technology enters our physical world. The company also celebrates their existing partners, organizations across a wide range of industries.
On June 1, 2016, the company announced that mixed reality would soon be coming to PCs. Microsoft has invited their virtual reality partners to join, so that they will be able to break down the barriers between virtual and physical reality. The company has also gone on to combine Windows Holographic with the power of the PC and all its Virtual Reality innovation so as to enable new mixed reality experiences which was not possible on any other platform.
Since the January 2015 debut, Microsoft has gone on to empower developers as well as organizations as to bring the vision of mixed reality to life. Over 80 exclusive mixed reality apps are now available in the Windows Store.
And now, the company has taken the HoloLens internationally so as to reach more users and provide them the taste of its most promising and advanced product.
Microsoft states,
“When we set out to pioneer mixed reality we knew that many of the best innovations would be discovered only when developers and organizations started developing with HoloLens. As a creator, there is no better feeling than empowering others to let their imagination run wild with innovation. It has been nothing short of inspiring to see what our partners have built and what individual developers have created. Together, we have only scratched the surface for what mixed reality can do. I can’t wait to see what happens next as we welcome these new countries to our holographic landscape.”
