Microsoft HoloLens developer kit announced

New information has been released about the Microsoft HoloLens, a developer release date has been announced and also a price.

With everyone trying to get themselves into the virtual reality market Microsoft have given details on their latest venture, Microsoft Hololens. Today Microsoft officially announced that the Developer Edition of the HoloLens will be made available early next year.

Microsoft HoloLens does defiantly look like a good bit of kit and the possibilities it could bring to gaming and even technology in general are huge. We were blown away by the in depth demo given at E3 which showed the device in use during a game of Minecraft.

Thanks to EuroGamer for the Video!

Now lets move on to the price to get hold of one of these devices, developers can apply online in the near future to potentially get their hands on one but they are going to have to spend a pretty penny to pay for the device which is set to be $3000, that is pretty close to £2000! There has been no real update in terms of a new or increased specification and is said to be the model that was demoed earlier this year at E3, x86 Processor, 2GB RAM and a 60HZ refresh rate.

This price will really stop smaller companies or independent bodies (such as students) from being able to try out the device first hand, could this effect its future development?
