Is there any access to hololens depth sensor?

edited August 2017 in Questions And Answers

Currently I am developing a hololens programme. But I can not find the access to depth camera like kinect. Is there any way I can get the raw depth image from hololens? Many thanks!


  • Hey

    As far as I know it is not possible to access the raw data of the HoloLens. There is a short paper from the Laval University where they added an external 3D-sensor.

  • Nope, MS doesn't want any advanced applications being made for the Hololens, all cool stuff must be made in house by their teams.
