Back in February, Microsoft made its HoloLens augmented-reality headset available to select developers through an application process. Folks that Redmond deemed qualified then needed to fork over $3000 to get their hands on a HoloLens dev kit. Now, Microsoft is making the HoloLens Development Edition hardware available to any "developer" that wants to purchase one.
To qualify, prospective buyers need to be English speakers in the USA or Canada and hold a Microsoft Account. The price tag remains the same at $3000, and "developers" can purchase up to five sets of goggles.
Microsoft is also making it easier for companies to integrate HoloLens with the rest of their managed IT environments. The just-released HoloLens Commercial Suite lets businesses put their goggles in a limited kiosk mode, create mobile device management profiles, integrate HoloLens with Azure Active Directory and other identity-management services, encrypt the data on board with BitLocker, allow users to access a corporate network through a VPN, and create private curated app stores for the device. The HoloLens Commercial Suite is only available through a Microsoft account rep.
