Microsoft Hololens Development Edition Delivery starts today, announced by company today. Microsoft is accepting pre-orders for Hololens Development Edition since Monday, as announced on Windows Blog.

You must login to Windows insider account and submit an application to request your set of Hololens Development Edition.

The development kit contains

  • Headset device
  • Clicker to use as a mouse equivalent
  • Carrying case
  • Microfiber cloth,
  • Charger, and
  • A Micro-USB 2.0 cable

According to the blog post, “The device consists of multiple environment understanding sensors and it’s powered by a custom-built Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) and an Intel 32-bit architecture. The HPU is custom silicon that allows HoloLens to understand gestures and gaze while mapping the world all around you, all in real time.”

Post includes, “HoloLens has see-through holographic lenses that use an advanced optical projection system to generate multi-dimensional full-color holograms with very low latency so you can see holographic objects in your world. The key to a great holographic experience is holograms that are light point rich, i.e., they have a high holographic density and are pinned, or anchored, to the world around you. To achieve this, HoloLens has been designed for optimal holographic density of 2.5K radiants. The more radiants and light points there are, the brighter and richer the holograms become.”

Alex Kipman  added to the post “The device also supports Bluetooth 4.1 – helping enable accessories like the clicker that ships with your HoloLens device.”

After one year of announcement, company has finally started the delivery process. Company has also introduced HoloLens emulator for developers few weeks ago.
