ASUS is reportedly in talks with Microsoft to create a somewhat cheaper version of the software giant's HoloLens. In early 2016, Microsoft is expected to release a $3,000 developer kit but ASUS believes it could eventually create a less expensive version that may end up in your home.
Taiwan-based Asus, known for building affordable PCs, could eventually create a less expensive version of the glasses that may end up in your home. For Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft, the hope is that many companies will adopt the technology, which was introduced in January and runs Windows 10.
"Everything we're doing in hardware, we do with the mind of how do we grow the Windows ecosystem," Myerson said. "That is why we're investing to create a category."
It's ultimately up to Shih whether Asus makes its own version of HoloLens, Myerson added. Shih said he's "still evaluating" what form any potential Asus augmented-reality glasses will take.
