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.
Is it possible to get an interview for a college research paper?
I am currently writing a research paper on the Hololens, it started with a thesis of "What is the HoloLens?" And now has progressed to "What can the HoloLens do?" To answer these questions I needed sources, and although I could simply look through hardware and software review on the Microsoft site, I thought it would be far more interesting to ask a developer(s) of the Hololens what it is that makes it as incredible as it is.
While writing this I am interested in the hardware and its functionality, like how it accurately scans and writes meshes onto surfaces, as well as being interested in the software, like how it is capable of taking meshes and accurately projecting an image on a 2-d screen to give it a near-perfect 3-D representation to our eye. If you are willing I would like a skype interview, or something even simpler as a email by email interview about the Hololens and its capabilities. If you are able and willing, please let me know at my email: [email protected]
So you are aware, the point of this research paper is to explain what the HoloLens is, what it is meant for, and what it can do to common, everyday, not super tech-savvy people.
Thank you for your time.
