Greg Sullivan, the Director of Communications at Microsoft explains the new HoloLens 2 as being similar to a full-immersion VR headset. He refers to the experience has a mixed reality, which uses both augmented and virtual reality to accomplish this. The device is closer to a large pair of glasses with a strap, rather than a huge set of goggles one thinks of when they hear VR. What is special about the HoloLens 2 is the device knows what you are looking at in the real world rather than just which direction you are facing by using eyeball-tracking. The gadget also doesn’t require any hand sensors or devices, your bare hands can visually perform functions without any other controllers.
