Microsoft HoloLens Developer Edition Ships for $3,000 in Q1 of 2016

Microsoft's incredible HoloLens augmented reality solution gets more real each time the company shows it off.

Microsoft announced today that the HoloLens will be released to developers in Q1 of 2016. This is great news for virtual reality fans. I am somehow more excited about HoloLens than about Oculus. HoloLens has the potential to change how we use computers and not just for gaming and sex. HoloLens can have an impact on all aspects of digital life. 

Microsoft takes HoloLens to the next level by giving it to developers. It means the system works well enough to give to third parties to create HoloLens applications and experiences.

Developers have to invest $3,000 for a HoloLens developer system. Developers in the United States and Canada can apply now. There is a limit of two systems per application and applicants need to be a Windows Insider.

Microsoft HoloLens lets users create and shape holograms with gestures. Users can also communicate with apps using their voice and navigate with a glance. Microsoft HoloLens understands gestures, gaze, and voice, enabling users to interact in the most natural way possible. Windows 10 is the first platform to support holographic computing with APIs that enable gaze, gesture, voice, and environmental understanding on an untethered device.
