Amber Garage is creating a cheaper version of the HoloLens for those who can't afford the expensive developer kits

The costs of virtual and augmented reality headgear can be well out of the price range of an average user, who might be unsure of how they will like this new technology. Amber Garage, a startup focused on augmented reality, came up with a cheaper alternative to Microsoft’s HoloLens and called it the HoloKit. It’s a cardboard AR solution similar to the Google Cardboard for VR.

The developers used a cardboard frame to house the smartphone, with two mirrors that reflect what appears on the phone’s screen. A user looks through the viewer to see the phone graphics projected into augmented reality.

Amber Garage has yet to announce a price for the HoloKit, which is intended to make AR technology widely accessible. The cheapest HoloLens available costs $3,000.
