Back in November last year, Microsoft announced the availability of HoloLens for developers and commercial partners in Japan. They started taking pre-orders from December 2nd. Microsoft today announced that they have now started shipping HoloLens to developers and partners in Japan.
Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow, Windows and Devices Group, said the following regarding Japan launch,
We continue to be inspired by the work developers and customers are doing with HoloLens across the globe. Japan is no different. One of the companies already innovating with HoloLens is Japan Airlines. By using HoloLens, Japan Airlines has developed two proof-of-concept programs to provide supplemental training for engine mechanics, and for flight crew trainees who want to be promoted to co-pilot status. We are very excited to have them on this holographic journey with us.
If you didn’t pre-order it, you can order it here from Microsoft Store Japan.
