Microsoft just blew us (and some virtual robots) away with a demo of its HoloLens ‘mixed reality’ gaming system. The good news? Those spider robots are just virtual. The bad: HoloLens still isn’t available for consumers.

Starting today, Microsoft is taking applications for developers who want to get their hands on a HoloLens set. If you’re cool enough for Microsoft, you’ll have to pay $3000 for the privilege of playing with a glitchy first-gen piece of equipment. But on the other hand: wearable holograms!

Follow the rest of the announcements from Microsoft’s hardware event here.
