And the United Kingdom

Microsoft has released its HoloLens AR gear for developers in France, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Vole began shipping HoloLens development kits exclusively in the US and Canada six months ago. Now after a long wait, Microsoft has announced in a new blog post that pre-orders are starting for more civilised countries.

This means that developers all across the world can start developing apps for the holographic platform.

Writing in its bog, Alex Kipman, technical fellow, Microsoft Windows and Devices Group.wrote:

"Since the launch of Microsoft HoloLens, we have seen really passionate developers and world-class companies develop ground-breaking computing experiences — experiences only possible on HoloLens."

"When we set out to pioneer the mixed-reality category, we knew that many of the best innovations would be discovered when others got their hands on the technology. It has been quite inspiring to see what our partners have built and what individual developers have created. Together, we have only scratched the surface for what mixed reality can do. I can't wait to see what happens next as we welcome these new countries to our holographic landscape."

The developer kits will be delivered late November and cost $3,000.
