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.

Holo Lens looks like a good deal I would like to Develop is it worth it ?

I am semi retired and my son is 3rd year at Rensselaer college Polytechnic Institute upstate new York I would like to develop one with my son Both of us think in code


  • Its hard for anyone to answer that question for you without knowing what you mean by worth it. If by worth it you mean is it something that could be fun/educational for your son then absolutely. Whether future commercial versions of the hololens takes off or not, AR is here to stay so that knowledge should be practical for your son if he chooses to pursue computer science.
