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.
Syncing position of shared AR content (across various devices)
I thought I'd share this simple demo I made which syncs the position of shared content across various devices/hardware with spatial tracking - Hololens, Google Tango and PSMove - and see what people thought ...
Because Hololens and Tango have similarly accurate spatial tracking they work really well together. My company has used them together on past project for a client.
Anyway I think its nice to use Tango with other AR systems, especially as the Hololens has quite awkward UX atm.
Of course Hololens has the sharing service, but this system shares positional data with other devices and so allows positional sync with any AR device.
