Developing holographic apps is as simple as building for the Universal Windows Platform. All holographic apps are Universal Windows apps, and all Universal Windows apps can be made to run on Microsoft HoloLens. With Windows 10 and familiarity with middleware tools like Unity, you can start getting ready to build holographic experiences today. See the tools and documentation that are ready to help you get started.
Companies exploring augmented reality for business should consider the innovation potential in mixed reality. Microsoft HoloLens enables mixed reality, an experience that goes beyond augmented reality products. Mixed reality encompasses a wide range of experiences that previously were considered to be only augmented reality or only virtual reality. In mixed reality, people, places, and objects from your physical and virtual worlds merge together in a blended environment that becomes your canvas. Feeling present in your environment is a key aspect of mixed reality, enabling you to move naturally, interact, and explore in three dimensions. For these reasons, Microsoft HoloLens is the premier head-mounted, holographic display headset that will transform the areas of product design, architectural technology, drafting and design technology, education, retail, healthcare, and manufacturing.
