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.
Augmented Reality with 3-D Object Measurement
We have extracted the vertex points from the spatial mapping data of our office floor and exported them to our own software (middleware) for point cloud processing:
We have found that the structure of point cloud is based on an 8x8x8-tree.
- 1 block = 8' x 8' x 8' = 8 brick x 8 brick x 8 brick
- 1 brick = 1' x 1' x 1' = 8 voxel x 8 voxel x 8 voxel
- 1 voxel = 1/8' x 1/8' x 1/8'.
What we will be doing is to display a pin-up poster onto a virtual screen in a cylindrical room corner as below:
For this purpose, we have to know accurately the radius, length, position, and orientation of the real object cylinder. The results of the cylinder fitting are shown below:
The next steps are:
1. Impelementation of the procedure to HoloLens
2. Mapping & displaying a pin-up poster onto the virtual cylindrical screen
3. Rendering the wireframe cylinder, if neccessary.
A gazing point of HoloLens will the pin-up position.
We use DirectX.
