We haven't heard a lot from Microsoft on HoloLens recently, but it made an appearance at the company's latest event in New York City, where we found out that it's getting a developer kit (opens in new tab), set for release in Q1 of 2016.
However, even for a device primarily for developers, it's still quite expensive, with a $3000 price tag, as opposed to the DK2 from Oculus, for example, which costs $350. (Granted, this is comparing apples to oranges somewhat, but that's still an enormous price gap.)
If developers are still interested in grabbing a HoloLens kit, they can start applying today. Applicants can only request a maximum of two devices, must reside in the United States or Canada, and participate in the Windows Insider program. Even after the applications, you won't find out until you're approved to pre-order HoloLens until January 2016. After that, HoloLens will ship sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
