Dubai is home to a VR park where people get to step into virtual reality as giant Transformer robots. The UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention has also adopted VR for rehabilitation in physiotherapy for stroke patients and children with developmental disorders. Mixed reality is allowing people to get a taste of the metaverse at a lounge in Dubai, where people could dine in virtual worlds.

To enhance the VR experience in the UAE, tech giant Microsoft has launched its Hololens 2 mixed reality headset in the country. The device offers an immersive and intuitive journey into the virtual realm, with Dynamics 365 business application, industry ISV solutions, and scalability of Microsoft Azure cloud services while ensuring security. The headset improves remote collaboration by moving it beyond two-dimensional screens by blending physical and digital realities.

Microsoft’s Hololens 2 and Azure mixed reality services are saving costs and reducing energy consumption for firms globally, across sectors including manufacturing, construction, and healthcare. It introduces AI-powered holograms that interact in the real world by responding to commands in real-time. Besides enhancing employees’ health and safety, Microsoft’s Hololens is found to have a 177% return on investment over three years.

Microsoft uses a combination of cutting-edge hardware such as Hololens, Azure cloud services, and cross-platform tools to upskill companies with seamless mixed reality experiences. By blurring lines between virtual and real worlds, the Hololens 2 headset helps the workforce become more innovative.
