#Hololens #VirtualReality – Microsoft Opens Up HoloLens Sales To US And Canada Customers: Do You Have $3,000 To Spare? : Microsoft has opened up sales of the HoloLens augmented reality headset Development Edition to all customers in the United States and Canada.
Previously, the HoloLens was only available to be purchased by companies and developers through the sales representatives of Microsoft. The augmented reality headset can now be purchased directly from the online Microsoft Store.
According to a blog post by HoloLens project head Alex Kipman, interested customers can purchase up to five units of the device, which comes with a price tag of $3,000 each.
Technically, sales were only opened up to developer and business customers, but since Microsoft also waived the previous requirement of submitting an application to be able to purchase the HoloLens, the augmented reality headset is now freely available to anyone willing to pay for it.
The only requirement for customers to buy the HoloLens Development Edition is a Microsoft account, which is easy to acquire. Purchasing the device, however, will request customers to acknowledge that the product they are buying is not the finished product that Microsoft intends to roll out to consumers.
