The US Army is about to receive its first shipment of HoloLens

Tech news – Microsoft will soon deliver the first batch of headphones ordered in a $22 billion contract (today’s value is around HUF 8800 billion!) to the United States Army.

Microsoft HoloLens is Redmond’s augmented reality (AR) headset, first seen by the public in 2015, but the tech company is silent about the consumer version, while hearing a lot of interest from the US military. In 2018, it was an agreement worth 480 million dollars (today’s value is 192 billion HUF), and with the help of this, Microsoft increased its “lethality” during combat missions. Then came the formal agreement in 2021, which will supply the military with $22 billion worth of HoloLens military supplies.

It’s been a while since then, but Bloomberg It has now reported that it has begun shipping HoloLens to the military. There was a delay because the system needed some fine-tuning to be seriously prepared for the expectations of the Army…while there were rumors of a somewhat turbulent situation in the HoloLens team and management, which was also a crippling factor. In any case, HoloLens puts before us a screen that displays information through a system called IVAS. The integrated audio-visual system (ie the integrated audio-visual system) is similar to what a fighter pilot would see, for example, in that it is also a screen built into a helmet. Another feature here is that HoloLens also has night vision.

The screen can identify structures, measure distances, or highlight moving objects, so it’s a useful technology. It is somewhat similar to the interface of a video game, which seems a bit scary because the lives of real people could be at stake here. “We have made a tentative decision that we will not withhold technology from the institutions we have elected in democracies to protect the freedoms we enjoy,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said after the employee protested.

However, it would be better to think about where the technology could be usefully applied. It’s probably of more use in healthcare, right?
