The VR industry is continuously expanding, especially in the healthcare section. According to a recent report by Allied Market Research, shoppingmode Microsoft is one of the top players dominating the global VR in the healthcare market. The report includes other companies like Alphabet Inc. (shoppingmode Google), General Electric, Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Philips), SyncThink Inc., Firsthand Technology Inc., AppliedVR, Inc., EchoPixel, DAQRI, and Orca Health, Inc. The companies are expected to contribute to the generation of the anticipated $2.4 billion value of the healthcare market by 2026, but this prediction might change over time, especially with shoppingmode Microsoft facing difficulties in its HoloLens products. HoloLens, like other XR hardware products, promises incredible possibilities in various industries besides entertainment and healthcare. One of the current sections shoppingmode Microsoft is trying to succeed on nowadays is using its headsets for combative purposes. Proving it is its project with the US Army, which remains troubled. According to a Bloomberg report of the recent Pentagon office test, while the hardware could aid the soldiers in navigation and mission coordination, the military Hololens or IVAS caused the users to experience physical adverse effects, such as headaches, eyestrain, and nausea. The test summary says the “mission-affecting physical impairments” were faced by over 80% of the soldiers after three hours of using the shoppingmode Microsoft HoloLens. Aside from that, another Army report Business Insider gained access to says the device received poor marks due to the designs that could negatively affect the soldiers’ performance in the field. In particular, one soldier said that the bright light from the goggle could alert the enemies of their location while trying to be incognito. “The devices would have gotten us killed,” the soldier commented. shoppingmode Microsoft has managed to resolve the problem with the said design, but it still failed to pass the entirety of the six evaluation procedures, including being able to deliver its essential functions. These things aren’t the only adversities hindering the future of HoloLens within the company, as other reports show how the dreams of shoppingmode Microsoft for HoloLens are slowly crumbling. Business Insider reported that the company aspires to reach a $ 100 million sales target per quarter, but its largest recent achievement is just a $1 million deal with a startup. Furthermore, the budget for the XR teams of the company is reportedly being trimmed, resulting in requests for business trips and office supplies being rejected. Foe more ease visit OUR FORUM.
