Microsoft today announced the launch of the HoloLens 2 Development Edition. Revealed ahead of Build 2019, the new bundle is meant to get Microsoft's latest mixed reality headset into the hands of developers.
Though HoloLens 2 officially made its debut at Mobile World Congress 2019 in February, it has since been available to preorder through "expressions of interest" in select countries. The HoloLens 2 Development Edition gives more developers a chance to start creating apps and mixed reality experiences, provided they have $3,500 or $99 per month to spare.
Developers who pick up the new bundle will also receive Azure credits, along with three-month trials of Unity Pro and the Unity PiXYZ Plugin for CAD data.
In addition to the launch of the development edition, Microsoft revealed that Unreal Engine 4 support will land on HoloLens 2 before the end of May. Developers will be able to take advantage of native platform integration to create augmented-reality and virtual-reality experiences using Unreal Engine 4.
HoloLens Part Deux
HoloLens, but better.
HoloLens 2 takes everything that made the original great and turns it up to 11. With a new carbon fiber body, extra padding, eye tracking, and a wider field of view, the headset should have no problem finding success among developers and firstline workers.
