At the ongoing Microsoft #Windows10Devices event, the company has announced that it will make HoloLens development kits available in the Q1 of 2016. The company has priced the kits at $3,000, which is about 2lac approximately.
Microsoft says that the company will be accepting applications for the kit starting today. Developers can apply online to buy a unit from Microsoft's website. The headset will initially be available in an invite-only model.
