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.

QR reader and position

Hi ,

I am student will be working on a project where QR/barcode scanning is needed and other special virtual objects need to be created like virtual humans . I will hang some QR codes for special human conversation and other usage .
I am really interested in using Hololens in this project but have some questions before I decide to go a head . My plan as I explained is to create some virtual objects such as specific 2D/3D shapes ( QR...etc ) or two virtual human conversations . In my project , I need to locate this virtual objects so my questions are :
Is it possible to create a specific virtual objects with Hololens ? in other words. Can hololen be programmed to create a specific objects like QR ( Quick response ) code , virtual ....etc ?
IF yes. Can I locate this object ( get x,y,z 2D /3D) and is the location is accurate with Holones or there wil be l some errors and how much percentage will be the error in your experience ?

I saw some tutorials on UWP, QR Code Scanning with ZXing and HoloLens ( not sure if they are able to get the location of the QR ) so the Holons Sdk can not craete these QR alone . it must be used with ZXing.

I am totally new to Hololens.

    elahemer,
    I am working on a somewhat similar project with the HoloLens! Is your question regarding "getting the location of the QR" in terms of if a user can look at a QR code and then it will jump to the designated web link, or whether a developer can embed an image of a QR code in a space?

    thanks for your replay and I am sorry I just get back . I really was sick and recover and back to school now.
    I am happy that you work in same project .
    I am new to Hololens but what I am trying to is to create qr object and get how far this from the hololens . So Create this qr and then get its location with respect to Hololens. so developer can embed an image of a QR code in a space and get its location?
