HoloLens has 15′ FOV and its Battery Lasts 5 Hours
A bunch of new details have been leaked relating to Microsoft’s augmented reality head mounted device, HoloLens. This time, the details have come out from an event in Tel Aviv, Israel where Microsoft’s Bruce Harris was talking to a closed doors meeting.
Not only that, someone managed to make a video and post it online – we have shared the video below.
Anyhow, according to the new leaks, HoloLens is going to be completely wireless which means you can put it on and walk around wherever you want. However, there is one problem due to that, the battery life of the device is going to last only 5 hours.
Also, it depends on your usage because just like a smartphone, the battery time could be cut in half if you were making extensive use of it.
That being said, it has also been revealed that the field of view of the headset is only going to be 15 inches and you will be seeing it as if you are a couple of feet away.
Check out the rest in the video below.
A number of features for the HoloLens have been confirmed in the past for instance, Microsoft has stated that the head mounted set is going to focus more on enterprise and less on gaming – which is somewhat different to what we initially expected. Also, it has been confirmed that the augmented reality set is going to come with Xbox One related functionality which is certainly a good thing for all the gamers out there.
