Microsoft has started taking pre-orders for the HoloLens dev kits, to pick one up you’ll need $3,000 / £2,160 according to the company announcement.
Developers who place a pre-order can expect their kit to start shipping on the 30th March and comes with three game experiences including Conker and Fragments.
Fragments turns your home into a crime drama where you solve clues that are augmented around your environment.
Conker appears in a game called Young Conker although RARE’s character doesn’t look like his usual loud mouthed self, maybe he put on weight in the later years.
The third game is RoboRaid and was previously showcased at the Microsoft event and is a first person shooter where robots and creatures invade your living space and you have to fend them off..
Other software includes HoloStudio which you can use to draw 3D objects using 3D gestures; HoloTour, which is a 3D version of StreetView where you can explore landmarks from your own home and finally a HoloLens version of Skype.
It should be noted that while the HoloLens dev kits costs as much as it does, the retail version pricing hasn’t been announced and it isn’t unusual for development hardware to cost many thousands of dollars while the consumer level hardware costs hundreds.
There isn’t much to entice you to pay the heft price tag unless you are a developer but if you have a spare $3,000 you could do worse with your money.
