Microsoft video teases HoloLens 2 ahead of MWC launch

One of Mobile World Congress’s most anticipated reveals isn’t a phone at all. Microsoft is expected to announce the next generation HoloLens headset at an already-announced event on February 24, and the company’s doing a bit more to stoke the flames. Granted, there’s really not much to see in this new teaser.

Investment in the next big thing in computing is cooling off — except for one super-hyped startup that few are sure of

Magic Leap, an insanely hyped augmented reality startup, is regularly pulling in hundreds of millions of dollars in funding. But investment in the broader augmented reality and virtual reality industry is flatlining. New data shows how over the past three years, investment in the AR/VR space — excluding Magic Leap — has stayed fairly steady. Investment in two fields that promise to be the next big thing in computing — augmented and virtual reality — has exploded over the last year or so, fre...
