Microsoft has unveiled the successor to its mixed reality headset HoloLens.
HoloLens 2 took centre stage at a press event around Mobile World Congress Barcelona this weekend, demonstrated by Microsoft technical fellow Alex Kipman.
The new model more than doubles the field of view of the original, and has reworked the way users interact with holograms. The new time-of-flight depth sensor enables you to directly manipulate AR objects in the way you would their real-world counterparts.
Microsoft has also added eye-tracking sensors to make interactions feel even more natural, and iris recognition will enable users to log in without the need for passwords or other forms of security check.
The design of HoloLens itself has also been revamped, with a new mechanism for putting the device on that doesn't require it to be adjusted first. Microsoft claims it has "accounted for the wide physiological variability in the size and shape of human heads by designing HoloLens 2 to comfortably adjust and fit almost anyone."
