If you are an enterprise or a company with mixed reality solutions, here’s a great news from Microsoft. You can now customize Microsoft HoloLens 2 based on your needs.
Even though HoloLens has been tested and found to conform to the basic impact protection requirements of ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and EN 166, some challenging environments require more than that. We have seen HoloLens being used in conditions like construction sites, operating rooms, International Space Station and more in the past. With HoloLens 2, Microsoft is introducing a program called HoloLens Customization Program that will allow anyone to customize HoloLens 2 to fit their environmental needs.
Microsoft today highlighted that Trimble is the first partner to take advantage of the HoloLens Customization Program. The Trimble XR10 with Microsoft HoloLens 2 is a new wearable hard hat device that enables workers in safety-controlled environments to access holographic information on the worksite. In a similar way, NASA can build its own HoloLens 2 device that can be used by astronauts on top of their helmets.
