How To: Buy a Microsoft HoloLens

Buy a Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft's HoloLens project is shaping up to be the forerunner of augmented reality. With jaw-dropping features that would allow you to bring entire football games into your living room and control software with your eyes, there's plenty to be excited about with the upcoming AR headset.

Up until now, HoloLens has been seen as potential vaporware, considering that the technology it brings to the table is so futuristic that some folks have thought it wouldn't be possible any time soon. But a recent blog post has proved the naysayers wrong, as Microsoft announced that it will start shipping developer editions of HoloLens on March 30, 2016, which is about the same time we'll have one in hand.

If you're a developer (or an aspiring one), you can apply to receive a HoloLens Development Edition unit right now—but make sure you have a decent amount cash on standby, because this early version will cost you $3,000. If that deal sounds amenable to you, just head to the link below to get started:

Considering that Developer Editions won't start shipping for almost another month, we imagine that HoloLens won't be released to the general public for quite some time. A specific timetable for consumer release hasn't been set yet, but stay tuned right here in our HoloLens Insider world for any breaking news.
