Microsoft HoloLens will reportedly use different US-based technology

An article published by Israeli news site Ynet indicates Microsoft may be making a 180-degree turn with its HoloLens project. The software giant reportedly fired as many as 60 Israeli engineers working on the project: about half of them were dismissed immediately, while the other half of permanent employees were given one month to find a new job within Microsoft.

According to the source, Microsoft plans to move forward with the HoloLens based on different technology developed by a US-based team. This late in the development cycle of the device, we can only guess what this means, and whether it impacts the entire project or just a small aspect of it.
This news all comes from Israeli news site, Ynet, so right now all we have are rough translations, so it is hard to get the full story. The team impacted by this change had been working on the Hololens for two and a half years prior to this. According to the report, Microsoft’s Israel branch did confirm that it recently made decisions that would impact a number of jobs but didn’t mention the Hololens project specifically.

A rough translation of the article was posted to NeoGAF, so take everything here with a pinch of salt. Right now, it is not known if this change impacts the entire Hololens project or just one aspect of it, either way though, the developer edition of the headset is still due out next year for $3000.
