The world mobile communication conference (MWC) 2019 conference was held in Barcelona, Spain yesterday.
Microsoft officially announced the new generation of hololens 2 hybrid reality (MR) head display at the press conference before the program. In addition, Mozilla has just announced its cooperation with Microsoft to apply the reality of Firefox to this new head display.
Microsoft hololens 2 aims to open webvr to multiple platforms by using Firefox reality. Currently, it supports virtual reality (VR) head displays, such as live wave devices, oculus go and Google daydream view, as well as early developer preview versions of magic leap one. The version of hololens 2 is currently just a prototype.
With Mozilla’s hybrid reality programs, developers can ensure that users get a secure, private experience using open, accessible technologies, thanks to their focus on providing the best browsers, services, and tools.
“In the coming months, we will work with the rust community to bring a safer language and runtime to the hololens platform,” Lars Bergstrom, engineering director for Mozilla’s hybrid reality project, said in a statement. Then, based on the previous work of AR head display, we will introduce our next generation network platform, servo, into hololens 2, which will be available this summer. “
Mozilla launched Firefox reality in September last year to provide 3D web and immersive content to VR head display users using the quantum engine used by the latest version of desktop Firefox. Since then, browsers have been updated to include 360 degree video support and other languages. Mozilla is also working with HTC live to make Firefox reality the default web browser for head display manufacturers across their product lines.
The difference between the MR head display and the VR head display of Firefox needs to be shown
