Microsoft today released a new update to its VR platform, Hololens. This is the third update in a row. If you own compatible hardware with a build of HoloLens RS4 installed, you can update it now.
A new blog post by Microsoft reveals that the Redmond software giant is bringing HoloLens to 29 additional markets starting today. That means HoloLens is now available in 39 markets, up from the 10 markets it was available in. The product continues to be targeted at developers and businesses.
As you may already know, Windows 10 Creators Update comes with a new feature - the Windows Holographic platform, which adds a new icon to Settings.
Even if Microsoft is already quietly working on a new hardware revision for its augmented reality headset, HoloLens, there is still place for improvements to be done to the current platform. That said, Microsoft is trying to attract even more developers by supporting more tools and technologies on its platforms. Almost a week ago, Microsoft quietly released the HoloJS framework on its GitHub page.
Microsoft HoloLens was first announced almost two years ago and during that time it has not only created countless possibilities for developers all around the world but has also become the flagship device for the new wave of mixed reality headsets: the entire family of Windows Holographic devices coming later next year is inspired by Microsoft's own product. But now it seems like the company itself isn't planning to just stay in the shadows — new rumors suggest that Microsoft is already working on HoloLens 2.0.
