This is a parts list that broke down "Development Edition" for HoloLens developers apart.

It is sold for $ 3,000 (about 330,000 yen) for developers of games and applications for HoloLens.

The biggest feature of HoloLens is the visor part that produces augmented reality (AR) information by hologram which Microsoft calls "mixed reality (MR: mixed reality)".

A see-through type display is carried.

A "brain" unit that contains a CPU that creates a hologram by a black part above the visor that creates the hologram.

The hologram is displayed as if it floats in the air in front of you, you can operate with your fingers.

The top of the headset is full of sensors. A camera unit is mounted on the front.

A depth camera for measuring depth (distance) in the center upper part.

HoloLens is a very small PC that functions independently without connecting to external equipment such as PC or game machine. This type of motherboard.

Various connectors can be confirmed.

On a tiny board, CPU, GPU, memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth module and Microsoft special holographic chip etc are stuffed up.

This small part is a speaker unit.

Speakers are mounted on the left and right.
