Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 is now available for anyone to buy on the Microsoft Store for the first time. Previously, Microsoft only sold the HoloeLens 2 as a development edition to developers and organizations through resellers. The price for the headset on the Microsoft Store remains $3,500.
HoloLens 2 first made its debut at Mobile World Congress 2019, before shipping in November of 2019. At Build 2020, Microsoft announced that the mixed reality headset will expand to 25 countries and regions starting this fall.
HoloLens 2 is built on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 platform, bringing a mixed reality experience that allows users to overlay digital experiences on the real world. Since its first iteration, HoloLens has seen significant use in enterprise scenarios, being used for training, remote learning, remote assistance, and much more.
There are currently no plans to bring HoloLens 2 to more consumer applications, but Microsoft is pushing forward with its professional vision for holographic technology. Still, if you’ve got the spare cash and want to experiment with or develop for HoloLens 2, you can now order the headset for $3,500.
