Educational and instructional moments are more effective when you can show as well as tell. Skype for HoloLens lets your contacts see what you see and draw on their screens to place holograms over physical objects in your view. See how holograms can help people communicate in new ways.
Build 3D in 3D with natural gestures and movement, using holographic tools modeled from tools in the real world. Create holograms of your own design and turn them into physical objects with 3D print compatibility. Get a hands-on understanding of how users interact with 3D content.
In this mixed reality first‑person shooter use gaze and gesture to target enemies and dodge incoming fire using natural movements. Spatial mapping turns each room into a unique game level, while spatial sound lets you use the entire room to play—even the spaces behind you.
Actiongram delivers an eclectic mix of holograms that enables new forms of storytelling. Stage your own video creations by moving, resizing, rotating, and recording these holograms in your home, and then share those videos with your friends. Coming soon to the Windows Store on HoloLens.
