Just days ahead of Microsoft Build 2019, the Redmond company has announced the HoloLens 2 Development Edition. The new move is targeted to enhance mixed reality (MR) developments, and it comes as an expansion of Microsoft's Mixed Reality Developer Program that is touted to have attracted more than 20,000 developers over the past year. Microsoft has also revealed that there are 54 Azure regions across the globe and over 1.3 million developers are using Azure Cognitive Services -- developing nearly 3,000 new bots each week. The HoloLens 2 Development Edition is being provided to developers through the Mixed Reality Developer Programme. It can be availed at $3,500 (roughly Rs. 2,43,000) or $99 (roughly Rs. 6,900) per month and includes $500 (roughly Rs. 34,700) Azure credits and three-month free trials of Unity Pro and Unity PiXYZ Plugin for CAD data.
