An #open invitation

The mobile era of computing was constrained by closed ecosystems. With mixed reality, the third wave of computing should be #open.

Compatibility with the tools you love

Use popular development platforms such as Unity, Unreal, and Vuforia to create your mixed reality experiences, and get built-in HoloLens 2 developer support.

Open standards, fully embraced

HoloLens 2 supports an open API surface and driver model—and Microsoft continues to support open standards such as Khronos and OpenXR.

The industry's leading device

With an advanced holographic processing unit (HPU), next-generation sensors and displays, and revolutionary hand and eye tracking, building immersive experiences is now truly possible with HoloLens 2.
