HoloLens dev kits are $3,000

Looks like that will chase away some potential developers.

HoloLens dev kits are $3,000 (apply now!)

Shipping Q1 2016

I remember hearing chatter that Microsoft's augmented-reality headset, HoloLens, would cost significantly more than an Xbox One. While we probably won't know the exact price tag for quite a while, the company has begun taking applications for a Development Edition of the device.

What's the damage? $3,000.

Developers in the United States and Canada can sign up now for the chance to buy this early HoloLens kit (up to two per application) in January. The devices will begin shipping in Q1 2016.

"As soon as additional devices are available, more accepted applicants will be invited to purchase," but "invitations may not arrive in the order in which applications were received."

Earlier today, Microsoft also demonstrated a HoloLens tech demo, Project X-Ray, at its Windows 10 devices event. Looks like a novel experience that would lose its appeal before long.
