Microsoft starts third wave of shipments for HoloLens Developer Kit

Eye tracking could prove beneficial to both VR and AR.

Microsoft have just opened up a third wave of shipments for the HoloLens Developer Kit, so if you’ve been struggling to get hold of a Developer Edition of the HoloLens, now would be a good time to apply.

To be eligible for a HoloLens Developer Kit, applicants need to be in the United States or Canada, be signed up to Windows Insider, and must be of English language since that’s the only available language.

With the semantics out of the way, Microsoft will be looking for those applicants who can share some great ideas with what they want to do with HoloLens and augmented reality. If you’ve got some great ideas of how you as a developer can leverage the platform for your idea then if successful will be invited to purchase the Developer Edition and hand over $3,000.

The path to purchase

  • To build a vibrant community, we are looking for a wide spectrum of developers to create diverse experiences. The more you share in your application form, the easier it will be for us to see how you’ll help build the future of holographic computing with us, one inspired idea at a time.
  • Accepted applicants will be invited to purchase the Development Edition.
  • Devices are shipping now. We will work to get devices out as quickly as possible. As soon as additional devices are available, more accepted applicants will be invited to purchase. Invitations may not arrive in the order in which applications were received.

It’s certainly not cheap to get your hands on the HoloLens Developer Kit, but the headset is at the forefront of augmented reality so you expect it to be on the pricey side. If you’re interested in registering for the program, head on over to official Microsoft HoloLens development website to sign up.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
