Previously the new Microsoft HoloLens augmented and virtual reality headset has only been made available to developers, but this week Microsoft have relaxed the requirements needed to purchase one of their new Hololens headsets allowing non-developers and those just interested in the technology the ability to purchase the $3,000 headset.
To be eligible to purchase a Microsoft HoloLens you now only need to have a Microsoft account, an address in either Canada or the US and the $3,000 funds available to purchase the HoloLens headset or upto five if your pockets are deep enough.
Although if you are in no rush the consumer version of the HoloLens headset is expected to cost a little less than the developer device currently available.
