It will start accepting applications for pre-orders in January. Each dev kit will cost $3,000, with a limit of two devices per application.

Dev kits will initially only be shipped to the US and Canada. Developers will also need to be a Windows Insider members and agree to provide feedback on the tech to Microsoft.

HoloLens was unveiled in January earlier this year. The tech allows users to interact with holograms in a physical space by using gestures and voice. Holograms can also be pinned to physical locations that can turn rooms into games, the prime example of this being Minecraft.
