Microsoft today shared an update on the company’s Windows Mixed Reality initiatives. Moving forward, the Redmond giant will be making it easier for more people to get hands-on with HoloLens, while also expanding HoloLens to additional markets.

HoloLens will soon become available in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates, making it available in a total of 41 markets around the world. Additionally, Microsoft is partnering with ABCOMRENTS and will help customers rent HoloLens. This is because Microsoft wants to help companies evaluate HoloLens for use at trade shows and events before making a final purchasing decision.

The company is also pointing out that many partners across various industries have adopted mixed reality in the workforce. Examples include Trimble, which is using Hololens in construction, HP which is pushing Windows Mixed Reality for the office, and Honeywell, which is using Hololens to train plant personnel.
