Microsoft announced a new HoloLens smart device, dubbed the Microsoft HoloLight, that pairs with smartphones, tablets and more.
The company also announced that it will soon start shipping the device to its customers in the U.S. and Canada.
“Microsoft has been developing the Microsoft Hololens since 2014 and they are the most popular and innovative technology in the industry today,” said Andy Rubin, Microsoft’s head of hardware and software engineering, in a statement.
“Today, we’re excited to unveil the Microsoft Holographic Light, a device that combines our Hololenses technology with the world’s most popular mobile and tablet operating systems.”
The HoloLens, which is Microsoft’s first foray into augmented reality, is an optical head-mounted display (HMD) that combines the latest technology with Microsoft’s Kinect sensor, which collects and analyzes data from its users.
The company has already announced that a HoloLens smartphone is coming in 2019, with the Windows 10 version to be announced in 2020.
Microsoft has already unveiled its HoloLens hardware in the past.
Earlier this year, the company showed off a prototype of the device at the Microsoft Developer Conference, which the company had previously confirmed would be ready for the public in 2018.
Microsoft also announced its HoloHog, a headset for Windows 10, during its Microsoft Developer Forum keynote last year.
This headset includes a pair of HoloLens optics and will be available in a wide variety of color options.
