    Asus mulls HoloLens augmented reality glasses of its own - CNET

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Microsoft may not be the only game in town when it comes to HoloLens augmented reality glasses.

    Asus, the world's sixth biggest PC maker, is talking with the Windows software maker about building its own version of Microsoft's HoloLens, Jonney Shih, Asus' CEO, and Terry Myerson, Microsoft's executive vice president of Windows and devices, have told CNET.

    Asus' interest in becoming the first outside company to build a version of Microsoft's device could give a boost to augmented reality, which projects 3D images in front of your eyes and overlays them on real-world environments. No version of HoloLens is on the market yet. Microsoft is expected to release a version for software developers for $3,000 in early 2016. That move is designed to spur developers to create HoloLens apps that will appeal to consumers.
    That's interesting. Seems we will have options.
