Expectations for a possible extension of HoloLens began when Microsoft announced that Alex Kipman, a technical officer, would speak in the event. Kipman, the creator of Kinect and
HoloLens as well as the head of the mixed reality of Microsoft, even fired the fire when he sent a tweeter to a mysterious video earlier this month . He will be joined by General Director Satya Nadella Corporate Vice-President Julia White .
The HoloLens headset is, after all, needed for upgrades. Microsoft first showed the headset of mixed reality
more than four years ago . And although there is still no consumer version, she found a building in the industry and the military (although a contract with the US Army $ 480 million created a disagreement in the Redmond ranks ). Rumors for continuing the HoloLens are at least June 2018 . A recent announcement that the HoloLens app comes to Android shows that Microsoft remains actively involved with technology.
