“The original HoloLens was always intended more for developers and businesses. As a result, it sold fewer than a 100,000 units a month after launching. Microsoft hasn’t indicated it intends to broaden the reach of HoloLens 2 to make it more consumer friendly, but it’s promising the new headset will ‘transform spatial understanding through advanced sensors and AI at the edge to make technology more personal and natural,'” reports Pocket-Lint.
