Here’s how you can buy Microsoft HoloLens right now (if you have $3,000)

Microsoft is celebrating the launch of the Windows 10 Anniversary update by opening up the HoloLens headset to anyone who wants to buy one.

The HoloLens Development Edition, which has been available in limited quantities since March, can now be snapped up without having to apply to Microsoft.

While that’s great news for those seeking to take the revolutionary AR headset for a spin, buyers will still have to part with a whopping $3,000 for a pre-consumer version.

The offer, which is only available to those with a shipping address in the US or Canada (via TechCrunch), entitles folks to order up to five headsets from HoloLens.com

The headset also comes with a clicker, carry case, charger and microUSB 2.0 cable for charging.

Currently available apps include Skype, Windows 10 apps like the Edge browser, the HoloStudio 3D design platform, the RoboRaid first-person shooter, Xbox and Crossy Road.

There’s also a version of Pokemon Go demo available, which to some folks will be worth the $3K investment. A Minecraft adaptation is also on the way.

The increased availability coincides with anew Commercial Suite for HoloLens aimed at assisting enterprise users.
