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.
Getting raw data from sensors
I was wondering if it is possible to obtain raw data from the HoloLens sensors. I've read the it is not possible, but now some time is passed until that answer, so it is now possible? Will it added in a future update?
We are planning to use the depth sensor in our application but actually we can't because it isn't exposed by the API. We also want to implement some gestures, but the API exposed doesn't allow us to get the control we need.
There are some "beta SDK" that expose it? It is possible to gain more control by contacting someone in Microsoft that can give us more info about it?
