Updated Jan 3, 2019
With the new year here, we wanted to revisit one of our more popular posts from 2018 and give you all some updates on where Magic Leap and Hololens are at these days. Enjoy!
It’s been almost 3 years since the Hololens has been released, we know it might not be completely fair to compare the two of these headsets. However, it is good to note that come April 2019 the new HoloLens 2 is rumored to be released. Some new and improved features to be expected are:
- Slightly improved display and field of view
- Will sit lighter on the head.
- More comfortable to wear.
- Battery life should vastly improve.
But for now, the October Windows 10 update with new features is out there for all current Hololens users.
Since it’s June release date, we have seen Magic Leap popping up with a lot more apps/”experiences” available to the public. A few 2018 December releases being:
- The first paid Magic Leap app called Seedling.
- The first multiplayer Magic Leap ‘Avatar Chat’ AR Social App.
After the original release of this post, we received some nice feedback from the Director of Applications at Magic Leap. Thanks for the mention!
