The VR hype train feels like it has died down a bit, but that doesn't mean Microsoft is done.
For a couple of years, it felt like VR was going to become an inescapable part of gaming life, but as we move into 2019, it certainly feels as though the hype has fallen by the wayside. In any case, Microsoft isn't done.
The company is widely expected to be unveiling HoloLens 2 at Mobile World Congress this year, and has seen a surge in orders among enterprises who are finding unique uses for augmented reality, particularly in medicine and engineering. The US military just dropped half a billion dollars on HoloLens orders, in a move that could see even bigger investments down the line.
Microsoft's cheap-and-cheerful range of Windows Mixed Reality headsets are also finding a foothold as a cheaper alternative to competing VR headsets, with on-board tracking proving to be a simpler set-up scenario than some other products out there.
At CES 2019, we saw a few examples of Windows Mixed Reality finding popularity as a modern arcade machine solution, granting opportunities for the location-based entertainment sector.
