Can I add holograms to the existing Hologram Applet in the main menu?

Hi Folks - We have a project where we need to place holograms in relation to IoT sensors. Some of the sensors are stationary, some are mobile.

For (hololens) video capture/demo purposes, we want to build graphics in HoloStudio and copy them to the Hologram Applet in the main menu of Hololens. The end goal is that we can place our custom hologram(s) in the Windows Hologram Applet and place them wherever we'd like

Any help or redirection much appreciated. :) - Jason


  • Hi @JasonHowell,

    The question of adding holograms to the Hologram app has been answered in previous posts like this one.

    However, with a little work in Unity it would be fairly straight forward to create what you describe in a custom app for POC purposes.

  • Hi @Jason

    Did you find a solution for placing your holograms? I am looking for something similar.
