Microsoft deprecates Mixed Reality

It’s kind of crazy that given the VR boom Meta saw in the pandemic that Microsoft couldn’t make any play with Windows Mixed Reality. But given that we’re just seeing usable color passthrough in the Quest lineup, not all that surprising. I’ve loved the idea of the HoloLens, but given they never really allowed consumer sales, they clearly knew the execution wasn’t there. Very interesting timing to see Apple’s big mixed reality bet coming in the next few months.
