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.

Create hologram Gallery similar to "Holograms"

I would like to create a Hologram app similar to the Windows Hologram app to allow me to select a Hologram and place it in the environment.
Unfortunately I have not found a thing so far, hence the post.

if anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks and happy developing

    So what I mean is if you want it to be like the Holograms app where you can see it from the "Home" screen then that is not possible. So basically, the Holograms app runs on the HoloShell, and allows the user to place them on their "Home" screen, where you launch apps from. This is currently not possible.

    If however, you want to make a fully immersive app, something like RoboRaid, where you leave the "Home" screen and all you see is the app that is loaded then that is completely plausible.

    As far as making a UI, User Interface, I would take a look at some Unity tutorials here:

    If you are talking about placing the holograms in the HoloShell, then currently, that is not possible. However, if you are talking about doing that inside of a D3D app then that is certainly possible.

  • Hi,

    thanks for your reply.
    Sorry I am not familiar with the terminology yet and I know it makes it a lot harder, lol!
    I have attached a screenshot of the window I would like to re-create with my own holograms.
    All I have found (and have been doing so far) is to create the holograms directly, however, this would be a much nicer window to allow users to interact with them.

    Thanks
