Is it possible to attach external micro-USB sensors to Hololens USB port?

I am working on application where external sensor (like temperature sensor , pressure sensor) data is Input for Hololens application.So, instead of creating another H/W circuit and giving input to application over wifi , thinking of attaching sensor directly to Hololens USB port.

    Hi Rj21,

    Unfortunately the Hololens only supports Bluetooth accessories. Please see this documentation for more details:

    You can only connect Bluetooth devices described in Hardware accessories as these are the only ones which have templates bth.inf for the devices.

    HoloLens software works like Windows Mobile, not desktop, even though the code exists it cannot be used and therefore cannot be expanded.

    The only extra not mentioned is Xbox Elite controller, which supports Bluetooth.

    Windows Mixed Reality Motion controllers require Bluetooth 4.0, HoloLens is Bluetooth 3.0 simulation.
