The Commercial Suite and the Development Edition are fully equipped for all HoloLens developers, whether you’re working as an individual or a team.

Optics

  • See-through holographic lenses (waveguides)
  • 2 HD 16:9 light engines
  • Automatic pupillary distance calibration
  • Holographic Resolution: 2.3M total light points
  • Holographic Density: >2.5k radiants (light points per radian)
HoloLens has see-through holographic lenses that use an advanced optical projection system to generate multi-dimensional full-color holograms with very low latency so you can see holographic objects in your world. The key to a great holographic experience is holograms that are light point rich, i.e. have a high holographic density, and are pinned or anchored to the world around you. To achieve this, HoloLens has been designed for optimal holographic density of 2.5K radiants. The more radiants and light points there are, the brighter and richer the holograms become.

HoloLens has been tested and found to conform to the basic impact protection requirements of ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and EN 166.
Sensors
  • 1 IMU
  • 4 environment understanding cameras
  • 1 depth camera
  • 1 2MP photo / HD video camera
  • Mixed reality capture
  • 4 microphones
  • 1 ambient light sensor
HoloLens contains advanced sensors to capture information about what you’re doing and the environment you’re in. The built in cameras also enable you to record, something we call mixed reality capture (MRC), HD pictures and video of the holograms in the world around you to share with others.
Human Understanding

  • Spatial sound
  • Gaze tracking
  • Gesture input
  • Voice support
With HoloLens you can create and shape holograms with gestures, communicate with apps using your voice and navigate with a glance. HoloLens understands your gestures, gaze, and voice, enabling you to interact in the most natural way possible. With spatial sound, HoloLens synthesizes sound so you can hear holograms from anywhere in the room, even if they are behind you.
Input /Output/ Connectivity

  • Built-in speakers
  • Audio 3.5mm jack
  • Volume up/down
  • Brightness up/down
  • Power button
  • Battery status LEDs
  • Wi-Fi 802.11ac
  • Micro-USB 2.0
  • cable
Microsoft HoloLens is the first fully untethered holographic computer running Windows 10. It is completely self-contained, with no wires, phones, or connection to a PC needed.
Processors

  • Intel 32 bit architecture
  • Custom-built Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit (HPU 1.0)
In addition to the CPU/GPU, HoloLens comes with a Microsoft HPU. This custom silicon efficiently processes a large amount of data per second from the sensors. HoloLens understands gestures and where you look, and maps the world all around you, all in real time.
Power

  • Battery Life
  • 2-3 hours of active use
  • Up to 2 weeks of standby time
  • Fully functional when charging
  • Passively cooled (no fans
Memory

  • 64GB Flash
  • 2GB RAM (2GB CPU and 1GB HPU)
Weight 579g
OS and Apps

  • Windows 10
  • Windows Store
