Microsoft is now taking ideas from the public for building apps for HoloLens

The Microsoft HoloLens community is already bursting with spectacular ideas for how holographic computing will transform our world. Now, Microsoft is taking ideas from the public to build Hololens apps. Microsoft is doing this to help inform developers what is possible on Microsoft HoloLens, and help them learn how to develop for it.

Share your idea through January 11th, and they will build one. They will also share each step of development as they go, and deliver the code back to the community.

Once you post a new idea, other members of the community can view, comment, and/or vote on your idea. The HoloLens team will review the ideas and comments, and help you understand which ones are feasible and best take advantage of the differentiated capabilities of HoloLens. The idea submission phase will end on January 11th, 2016 at 11:59PM PST. Out of the most popular ideas, the three most viable —as reviewed by our development team—will be put up for a final vote on Twitter. The winning idea will be created by our experienced HoloLens development team of designers, artists, and developers. You’ll be part of weekly build reviews, Q&A sessions, and more. Once we’re done, we’ll open source the code so the HoloLens community can start building from it.
