Augmented reality headsets are the next virtual reality headsets.
Asus is interested in building its own version of Microsoft’s HoloLens, a visor that can display holograms right on top of the real world, according to CNET.
Asus chairman Jonney Shih told the publication the company is “still evaluating” the idea of releasing its own augmented reality headset and that consumers will have to “wait and see.”
Microsoft is betting on HoloLens to be a pillar of success in its mission to get up to 1 billion users on Windows 10, its newest operating system.
Playing with holograms won’t come cheap. For developers, a HoloLens dev kit will cost $3,000. The consumer version of HoloLens will likely be priced much lower.
