Hello everyone.

The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.

There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.

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.

Project idea

I’m considering developing something for a moving company using hololens technology to quickly collect object sizes and efficiently determine best packing configurations. Do you guys think this technology could prove practical and effective?


  • One suggestion I would have is to consider the lighting of various rooms. You might get some low quality results in very poorly lit rooms, like a garage, or overly bright rooms, like a greenhouse or sunroof type situation. The HoloLens performs terribly outdoors. Other than that, it sounds like a fantastic idea for the average use case!
