Microsoft and Unity announce HoloLens 2 Development Edition, free Azure credits

Microsoft Entices Devs to HoloLens 2 Development Edition with Azure Credit, Trial Software

Microsoft hasn't disclosed much about HoloLens 2 since it was first announced at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, one of the most important gatherings for the mobile technology industry. 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.

One week ahead of its Build developer conference (May 6-8), Microsoft announced its HoloLens 2 Development Edition, a $3,500 package for developers working on the platform. Pre-orders for this version of the HoloLens 2 are limited to devs enrolled in the Microsoft Mixed Reality Developer Program as well.

The leading Augmented Reality headset and the leading game development environment are getting together.

"Pairing HoloLens 2 with Unity's real-time 3D platform enables industrial businesses to create immersive, interactive experiences that accelerate business and reduce costs".

To be notified when the HoloLens 2 Development Edition becomes available for pre-order, join the Mixed Reality Developer Program. The device has not been OK'd by the Federal Communications Commission, according to the website, and can't be sold until that approval comes through. That's the same price that Microsoft said it would charge for the normal, shipping version of HoloLens when it arrives later in 2019. All are all made with Unity and brought to life with HoloLens 2. The device recognizes the user's hands, and it allows users to touch virtual images and interact in several different ways.
