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
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.
