Then Microsoft said HoloLens would cost $3,000, pricing out consumers and even early adopters like me (and hordes of others who like games).
Then someone on Twitter told me, “It’s not for you.” Others weighed in, discussing how enterprise has glomed onto AR and that this is for factory jobs, not consumer entertainment. And that’s fine! Nothing wrong with HoloLens finding a business-oriented market. I applaud this.
But telling me HoloLens is not for me when Microsoft positioned it for me is poppycock. AR is for consumers like me, too.
I’m just going to have to wait a few more years for it.
