Hello everyone.

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.

Zoom in And Zoom out In Hololens

    On the HoloLens, the real world view is the "real world" seen through the see through lens of the HoloLens display. The real world is the analog view that you would normally observer by looking directly at the real world and the Holograms are digital content that are mixed into that real world view.

    Some of the upcoming Windows Holographic mixed reality VR accessories or the Project Alloy merged reality headsets are primarily VR devices that are expected to bring in Digital versions or parts of the real world into a Digital VR first experience. On those platforms you might be able to get creative with the imagery of the real world from the cameras and sensors on those devices to create Zoom In and Zoom Out views of the real world, but at this point in time HoloLens is a Reality first device as opposed to a Virtual first device.
