Hello everyone.

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.

Project - Different Strokes

I've got several app ideas, but I want to start with one that displays different swim strokes. The thinking is that a user would be able to select the stroke they'd like to learn/see. Upon doing so the user would be in a pool swimming that stroke. The user would then be able to view the stroke from any angle. I'm based out of Colorado, but I'm working with a company out in Australia so that we can do a preliminary P.O.C. I'd also love to brand the app with Speedo branding so I'm still in the process of seeing if I can partner up with Speedo in some form or fashion. I'll be updating my progress/lessons learned here.


  • Preliminary tests are looking promising! The company I'm teaming up with says that the character asset we bought doesn't show signs of skin deformation when the arm stretches above the head.

    Stay tuned!
    More to come....

  • Things are still moving along pretty well. I checked in with the company out in Australia named Evaro that I'm working with they said that the character animation is running smoothly at 120fps in Unity, and they needed to do some additional coding to get the water sim working, but it's working.

    Since HoloLens is only sold in the US for now they'll be using the emulator to check things out before sending things over to me to check on the actual device.
