ASUS Confirms Their Hololens-Like AR Headset In 2016

ASUS had working on their own AR headset.

ASUS CEO Jonny Shih said: “It should be next year when we come out with a product. We think AR will be very important for people’s lives”.


The new AR headset from ASUS will be very similar to Microsoft’s HoloLens, but Asus option will be much cheaper. The HoloLens should come around the $3000 price point, which is super expensive and beyond average consumers. ASUS want to deliver smeller experience on $500-$1000, if Asus can poll that of then much wider consumers can get it.

We don’t know what ASUS could do with its own AR headset, but knowing Asus from past, they just done so various thinks and they change the market. We hope to see something at CES 2016 in January.
