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.

Can the Microsoft Hololens recognize certain objects?

For example:

  • Trading card game cards / playing cards
  • Flora and Fauna, maybe even pulling up an image search
  • Pictures or posters on a wall
  • An actual object, such a television or a mirror

Asking mostly about trading cards.


  • This is a bit old but the Hololens Poster calibration should be able to recognize those objects. Mirror probably not and you would have to get pretty close to the trading card depending on how big they are.
