Mixed Reality Toolkit (MRTK) is an open source project that consists of set of components and features to help developers easily create cross-platform MR app development using Unity. It also allows developers to easily prototype via in-editor simulation that allows you to see changes immediately. Apps built using MRTK can run on HoloLens, Windows Mixed Reality headsets and OpenVR headsets (HTC Vive / Oculus Rift).

Microsoft yesterday released a major update for MRTK. The new MRTK 2.0.0 release comes with several new features, you can check out the video below to get an overview of them.
