Microsoft admits: HoloLens will be defective

Microsft holoLens

Microsoft Developer Kudo Tsunodo admitted that the HoloLens will only work properly when you look in the dead center of your vision.

HoloLens won’t work if you move your eye a little too far to the left or right. And you won’t be able to see any holograms. The HoloLens tester noticed this bug and the company promised that it would be corrected before launching.

But when Gizmodo asked Tsunoda if the vision flaw would be fixed, he said that “It’s not final, but I would also say it’s not a huge dramatic difference in the final version from what you see today”. Microsoft got the much needed praise as a HoloLens innovator.

If the HoloLens isn’t adopted soon, Microsoft might give up on the concept for years,  as it happened with Google Glass – another example of shelved virtual reality project.

The date of HoloLens launch is still uncertain. But Tsunoda hinted that it may be available from Windows 10 Release on 10’s July.
