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.
Are we allowed to sell the Hololens1 Development Edition?
The organization I work for is a Non-Profit that has an Emerging Media Lab.
The lab has two Hololens1 Development Edition headsets.
We would like to either sell them or trade them in for a discounted Hololens2.
I'm aware that when the headsets came out in 2016 Microsoft stated the systems were not allowed to be resold due to resellers price gouging.
But I'm curious if now they are allowed to be sold, and if so, is there anything we need to do to prepare them for resale (like remove/errase our license, etc.)....
Or I'm also curious if Microsoft has a trade in/buyback program to trade them in for a discount on the new systems.
We are trying to avoid creating ewaste and also upgrade our equipment.
