    It looks awful.... Will wait to read more. The Hololens would be hard to beat. I think if you are going down the 'holo' route, you're best not cheaping out and paying the extra for quality and holo resolution.

    A niche for now. But maybe the start of something better to come later.

    Could you actually walk around the streets with hololens? I thought that was a tethered devices?

    No you couldn't. But likewise, would you WANT to walk around the street with this? That's why I said it is niche. Until it is slim-lined etc. The Hololens is clunky etc but it is meant for a purpose -e.g lectures, teaching, business, design etc etc. It isn't made for walking to your local.

    As someone who wears glasses that looks incredibly uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time...

    As proof of concept and for those geeks with deeper pockets this is pretty impressive kit, but until its a lot smaller and cheaper its not going to be anywhere near mainstream, give it 10-15 years..

    Re: Google Glass Enterprise Edition 2 launched at $999

    Hololens and Glass are two very different products, wtih very different use cases and intents behind them....I have both the original glass and a hololens V1 (though work I must add!) and have had chance to play around developing applications for both.

    Hololens is untethered, and is basically a full PC that you can strap to your head, wtih a display that can project images/3d objects into the real world. It's a truely amazing piece of kit that is good for all the purposes that Neon mentions, and much more. We are experimenting with using it for holographic report generation and creating virtual screens for example, but there are many more good ideas that work really well with this kind of untethered mixed reality type headset.

    It's major downsides are that its absolutely huge and bulky (even the V2) and you'd never want to be out in public with it..its also very fragile, and currently the field of view is very small. the V2 makes great leaps forwards in this area mind and in the next 2-3 years hopefully we'll see units that are slimmed down enough and with a wide enough FOV to be used outside of a development/lab/prototype setting.

    Glass is very different - very small, slim, lightweight and simple - it provides a small screen that sits just about your right eye and is used for relaying basic information to you as you walk around. We've experiemented with it for providing real time, interactive notifications that you can deal wtih without stopping what you are doing (and all hands free) for example, and that actually worked brilliantly. It's main issue previously was that the battery life was worse than hololens (up to 4 hours in early OS versions, 2 hours with the last XE software version) and the overheating meant that you would (still do) get a red mark on your face after a while of using it.

    I still use mine to this day, but purely as a head mounted video camera - it's perfect for capturing videos of quadcopters/RC planes from my perspective when i'm out flying...but if the battery & heat issues had been solved, i'd use it day to day as well. I have previously worn it out in public many times too - using it for navigation, shopping lists etc.

    Two very different complimentary devices - they are not in competition with each other.

    Hopefully we'll get enough R&D budget left over this year to pick up a V2 glass, i'd be curious to see what the differences are

    Wait... The CPU is 10nm but the SoC is 7nm? Unless I'm mistaken, one of those numbers is wrong...
