Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Is the original HoloLens still available?

With the introdcution of the new HoloLens 2, the original HoloLens webpages disappeared. Were the webpages of the original HoloLens moved or were they replaced? If they were replaced, is it no longer possible to purchase an original HoloLens from Microsoft partners?

Answers

  • They haven't been available to purchase for awhile as they ran out of stock. They may have some reserves for special cases but otherwise I think we all have to wait until Hololens 2.

    The commercial units were showing as 'Enquire Now' rather than not available right up to the HoloLens 2 release announcement.

    This is exactly why I have this question. The development edition was indeed out of stock, but the commercial suite was still on 'Enquire Now'.
