Priced at a hefty $3,000, the development edition of HoloLens is focused on Microsoft’s commercial partnerships and on supporting developers, who will help pave the way to consumer availability with amazing and new holographic experiences.
Powered by Windows 10, HoloLens allows you can create and shape holograms with gestures, communicate with apps using your voice, and navigate with a glance. It’s the only device that enables holographic computing natively with no markers, no external cameras, no wires, no phone required, and no connection to a PC needed.
Our Sean Ong has already obtained his HoloLens, and demoed it in our most recent podcast. We’ve also previously published an unboxing video, a guide on how to use it to turn an empty space into an office, and even a full look at the user interface and how to wear the device.
