    probly not and less its rily cheap the MH v1 will be throught with problemes and it will not be for us. its geared to big biz.

    if you do buy one at first it will be a lot of fun and instring, but because of the FoV it will quickly become one of those things that sit's in the courbed and clects dust.. only to be pulled out when people come over to show off...v2 may change that but who know's they only way i see it working is if the price point is so high that only big biz can buy them.

    this will help cover the cost of develemp. and v2 will be for us. but as it stands now that FoV will make it inpractal for most people to use...

    but i'm shore the sheep will still be lining up around the block the night befor it comes out with no idear what there actaly going to do with it

    My friend is testing HoloLens and says they're way better than Google Glass. I'd buy a pair but it'll depend of the price

    While that may yet prove to be so, I think the two device's are targeted at two totally different use cases and have entirely different objectives from the get-go.

    No one expects you to walk around town with your Hololens on after all. :)

    Yea maybe, but my friend's walking around the town recording usual things :D So in your opinion? What's the main destination of using HoloLens?

    In Microsoft's own demonstrations, the Hololens has always been used in a building, doing work, playing a game in your living room, or video conferencing with a colleague. Time will tell, I'm excited to see what comes of this interesting new tech from Microsoft.

    Now we know the price, at least for the Developer's kit: $3000.

    That is way out of my league but I will get one when it's more affordable.

    Maybe time for a new poll.

    I imagine they are going to have to reduce this price at least a little bit if they want it to become used by anyone other than corporations & elite enthusiasts.

    Then again that is just the price of the developer edition, the consumer one could be different.

    I went to the Demo in Los Angeles last month and while my initial reaction was disappointment (due to the field of view) I quickly adjusted and didn't find it a deal breaker. I do still think the field of view and the price tag limit it to business uses. But, that is what I was interested in using it for anyway! :D

    1. Price
    2. Software choices

    1 will determine 2, if 1 is low, then plenty of 2 will come out...

    In a nutshell, If there is plenty of software and when it hits retail, and hits under the $500 mark, sure I will get one but, if it's $2500+, lots of software choices WONT be available(devs go for most customers, high price wont have as much) so chances are VERY high I wont buy one...

    I'm looking forward for a proper final product review before deciding. But that price is outrageous, at the moment...

    I feel it is way too soon to purchase anything AR related. It's almost like when VR just released, it took quite a long time for the ball to start rolling.

    It would definitely depend on the final price (not the current ~$3000 developer one) upon release.

    Having said that, I don't usually buy "new" technology when it first comes out either. I rely on user feedback+reviews before I can make an informed decision. Not to mention for a new product like this, probably a year later they'll release a newer model with all (possible) issues fixed.

    Would love to, but sadly am losing more and more faith in MS every day. $3000? Still? After 3 years? Development-only version? Still? After 3 years?

    As Motley Fool suggests it seems like MS is about to let their early lead with an innovative product get leapfrogged again by either Leap Motion or Google.

    Is MS capable anymore of finishing anything it's started?

    Last I checked the HoloLens is being used in several big businesses, and different tools are being developed for it. I'm not aware of Google working on anything similar, and magic leap is so secretive that if they aren't vapourware they will have a hard time garnering developer interest - while out of the box every UWP app will work on HoloLens.

    What Microsoft is working on is pretty advanced, and the closest thing we will get to a Star Trek Holodeck without completely shutting out the real world. Give it time.
