Microsoft’s HoloLens to Dominate Enterprise Training Arena

(SeekingAlpha) Microsoft has set itself up to dominate the enterprise training arena with its augmented reality HoloLens system. It’s clear with the first developer’s kit at $3,000 that Microsoft isn’t looking to get its device into the hands of every person, at least initially. By distinguishing itself as an augmented reality device, Microsoft has set itself up nicely to dominate the training arena.
Whereas the Rift and the Vive will duke it out over the virtual reality space, Microsoft’s path is nearly clear. As an AR system, the practical applications of HoloLens are vast. For example, let’s say you are a mechanic trying to fix your first car. You could view the car’s actual engine within the headset and observe virtual arrows pointing to different parts while audio instructions play.
