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.

Urban Planning / City Model Viewer App Complete!

Hi Everyone, I recently completed an app for visualizing city models and plans. This was a project I worked on with Wismo for a city near Shanghai.

See a video of the project here:

Let me know what you think! Here are a few features I want to highlight:

  • Shared holograms! Multiple people wearing the HoloLens will all see the same experience together.
  • Ability to enter into an "immersive mode" to see a very large scale of city areas
  • Pop-up information windows for various parts of the city


  • Wow. is this app available for demo?

  • When you say shared holograms - does everyone will look the model at the same position? or their own positions where they launched the app?

    @sudhakar82 yes, it's a shared experience. People can launch the app at any time and from any position. As long as they are in the same room - everyone will see the same holograms and experience the same interaction together!
