Microsoft has announced the expansion of HoloLens to six new countries
On behalf of everyone on the team, Kudo and I would like to welcome developers and commercial enterprises from Australia, Ireland, France, Germany, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom to experience mixed reality through HoloLens. Starting today, HoloLens will be available for pre-order in each of these countries.
- January 21, 2015: Microsoft HoloLens was introduced as the world’s first and still only, self-contained holographic computer.
- March 30, 2016: HoloLens shipped in the United States and Canada, with developers and organizations invited to step away from the 2D confines of monitors and pixels and explore what’s possible when technology enters our physical world.
- June 1, 2016: Mixed reality expansion to PCs announced. Windows Holographic combined with the power of the PC and all its Virtual Reality innovation to enable new mixed reality experiences that are simply not possible on any other platform.
“Since our January 2015 debut our team has been hard at work empowering developers and organizations to bring the vision of mixed reality to life. It’s been fascinating to see what has been created by our commercial partners and the team remains in awe of the way developers are using HoloLens. Over 80 exclusive mixed reality apps are now available in the Windows Store.”
If you are looking to join the mixed reality journey in any of the eight markets, you can purchase a HoloLens NOW from the Microsoft Store.
