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.

This YouTube (9th July 2017 using Win 10 Insider build 16241) video is just a simple non-tech user opening the box plugging the Acer MR headset in and using the thing Acer Mixed Reality Headset Unboxing, Setup


  • I thought Sean Ong was a dev (?).
    Wish the device were available now. What's keeping microsoft ? I guess even the MR Portal is not even quite ready ?

    Well there is a tutorial using Unity 2017.2b3 with MR [Tutorial Video Course 250 - Ch. 1 - Holo World] and the full hardware announce Fall 2017/December (November 2017) at the moment!

  • November 2017 is for consumer version ?
    For dev edition, it should come earlier, August I guess.

  • @HoloLite: Sean is a developer, however that video was his first experience with the MR Headsets and with VR in general. He has been developing for the HoloLens from early on.

    Yes, that was my video. I also posted another VR-focused video. I'm gearing up to post a few Mixed Reality developer-focused videos that I've been recording. Let me know if there's anything specific you'd like to see! @Jimbohalo10 @HoloLite

  • Hi Sean (@mr0ng) , thanks for jumping in :)
    As I am learning the MR stuff, any videos you did on this subject (like the one in this thread) will be valuable to me, and other devs too.

  • Shameless self promotion

    On my Patreon page, I am doing a series on walking through the Mixed Reality 250 project step by step.
