The augmented reality headset from Microsoft is now open for business and finally “goes real” for its waiting real-time customers.
Microsoft is opening up sales for its holographic headset HoloLens for everyone. Although so many people want to buy the helmet, Microsoft says HoloLens is available to developers and business customers only (called the “Development Edition“), but even if you’re not one of the two, you can have one.
All you need to do have a residential address in the U.S or Canada and have a proper Microsoft account.
The developer edition is for $3,000 but the enterprise version is not announced yet.

• Work Access – Provides access to business platforms from home.
• Windows Store for Business – Provides businesses access to the company’s apps like Word, Excel or Photoshop.

Here’s the official commercial of the HoloLens:
