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.
Pointing Gesture for HoloLens?
I'm trying to add the possibility to find out if the HoloLens user is pointing somewhere with a finger. I haven't been able to find a good solution yet. Does anyone know a good solution for this?
This is what I tried so far:
My first thought was to look into object recognition:
- I tried OpenCV for Hololens. Details: https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10636/hololens-opencv#latest
- I tried HoloLensForCV. https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10679/issues-with-hololensforcv#latest
- I tried OpenCVForUnity. The HoloLens example with facial recognition works. But the Code is confusing and I don't get much help from the support.
- I looked into microsoft cognitive services. In this topic someone suggested a blog post that seemed promising. https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10918/different-object-recognition-methods-for-hololens#latest But after training my model more and more it simply stopped working. Details: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52555299/custom-vision-on-hololens There is also the Project Gesture which I also don't know if it works for HoloLens and if so how.
So I would be thankful for any suggestion, advice, tutorial etc. Where do I even start or continue to work. I'm kind of stuck now.
