The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.
There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.
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.
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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.
And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Hand or depth camera API? Getting hand or individual finger position?
I'd like to explore creating some of my own gestures (ie, scrolling by flicking your hand), finger based pointing, etc.
Is there anyway I can get the hand or positions aside from using a manipulation gesture?
Something with the richness of the LeapMotion api would be amazing.
Short of that, is there anyway to access the depth camera data to try and infer it yourself?
