About one year ago, Microsoft introduced HoloLens to the world as the first and only fully untethered holographic computer. Yesterday, the company announced that it is now taking pre-orders for the HoloLens Development Edition.
This augmented reality headset costs about $3,000 and comes with a Bluetooth 4.1 Clicker that allows a user to interact with an object and trigger commands. Powered by a 32-bit Intel SoC with a customized Microsoft Holographic Processing Unit (HPU), the hardware comes with 2GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage.

In an animation video released by the company, a narrator explains how HoloLens renders holograms (or stereoscopic 3D images). The video explains why your eyes feel strained while HoloLens eradicates this problem. Our eyes respond according to the distance of the object and focus on objects differently.
