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.

The Holo Pimp - try Hololens before you buy it

The Hololens is an amazing device. You have to see it to believe it. So why not try it out first before buying it?

I am offering demos of the Hololens for your evaluation. I can meet you onsite at your company or at a location in westside Los Angeles. You can play with all the apps on the store for as long as you want. Just book my time at an hourly rate.

Message me for more details

    Oh boy, knew someone would do this. While I'm sure you can find plenty of people to pay you, think also about how much of a delight it is to be able to show someone a holographic experience for the first time. Unless this person has spent ages in VR or similar technologies, in their eyes you are pretty much a wizard. I've been lucky enough to demo to hundreds of people at work and it never gets old to see people's eyes light up as they discover a world-locked hologram for the first time, fight alien invaders in their living room or solve a crime mystery in a mixed reality world. I think one of the things that unites us as early adopters is our desire to see this type of computing paradigm grow. You can do that by showing the world of HoloLens (and related technologies!) to others whenever you get the chance, and I suspect you will have a very good time doing so.

    I am a former lion tamer and an avid collector of butterflies.

  • where are you from, sir? I would like to try it

  • Nevermind. Just saw it's LA

  • Is it permitted by MS to charge for demos of the Hololens? If so I'd be tempted to order a personal one tomorrow.
