Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition Shipping on March 30

Microsoft-HoloLens-Development-Edition

So you want to start developing apps for Microsoft HoloLens? The Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition is now available for pre-order. It will ship starting March 30. Applicants will receive invitations to purchase their kit starting today. For those of you not familiar with HoloLens, it is a Windows 10 device with support for holographic computing APIs.

Here is what Microsoft had to say about all this:

Developers should go to dev.windows.com/holographic for guides and detailed tutorials. Additional development tools that include Visual Studio projects and a HoloLens emulator will be released when HoloLens devices start shipping to customers on March 30. The emulator will allow developers to test holographic apps on their PC without a physical HoloLens and comes with a HoloLens development toolset – to help developers who haven’t yet received their devices get started right away.

HoloLens is fully untethered and self-contained. It has multiple sensors and a Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit. More information is available here.
