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.

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, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.

And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Cleaning the HoloLens


Has anyone dived into the cleaning of the HoloLens. We work for a pharmaceutical company that wants to bring it into a cleanroom. The environmental people asks if it can be cleaned with 70% alcohol using a cloth. What parts can withstand this procedure and what parts cannot?

    LUFQ did you get an answer to your question?

    One of our clients uses a HoloLens in a clean room. We clean the device (all the parts) with non-alcohol based wipes.
    Also it may be easier to bring the device into the clean room and never taking it out again. Such a device is exclusively used with gloves and a headdress so it does not come into contact with human skin.

    Not sure if this will be of any use being so late but I currently have had no issue with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol for everything but the screens and use Electronic Equipment Wipes for the screens. The 70% hasn't seemed to cause any adverse effects on the Hololens, just make sure there isn't any access moisture that can come off the pads.
