VR Tech Stocks to Buy: Microsoft (MSFT)
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is a key player in the VR market. Its HoloLens is still for developers to test for the viability of VR and develop applications for the environment.
For now, the HoloLens is too expensive. In 2016, Microsoft made the headset available to developers and business customers for $3,000 per unit. Microsoft’s first challenge is getting software that runs best in a headset environment and not on a computer screen, smartphone or TV set.
HoloLens is clearly more interesting than Google Glass and has stronger interest. Whereas Glass retreated from the consumer market and narrowed its market to industry, Microsoft is aiming for both the business and consumer market. Nasdaq already uses HoloLens solutions. It used the solution to build its next Mars rover.
