HoloLens Tutorials–What do you want to see?

So I’m going to be carving out some time to create HoloLens tutorials and wanted to know what it is you wanted to see.

I was thinking about starting with a simple bouncing ball and then adding in spatial recognition so the ball will bounce around the room off of walls and furniture and the like. We will have voice commands that will allow navigating through the different screens of the game (menu, pause, game play, etc). We would create a breakout style of game that would place bricks strategically in the room and make the player / camera the paddle.

What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing this become a tutorial series teaching that or would you rather see something else? Let me know in the comments.  The more comments I get here and on my YouTube channel will let me know if I should spend any time creating this content, or spend my time doing something else. So please take a second and drop a quick line to let me know if you’d be interested or not and if there was some other sort of tutorial you are looking for in regards to HoloLens development.

Seriously. Leave a comment and let me know what kind of HoloLens tutorials you’d like to see.

    I like to know how to create a HoloLens app that have object or barcode recognition – once it recognize an object (or barcode) it will have a popup panel that display additional web page or youtube video related to the object….

      This is a great idea. The VuForia library would be ideal at this as it recognize either a 2D image or an actual 3D object and display anything you want. I’ll see if I can create a demo around this in the future! Thanks for taking the time to make the suggestion!

        Can’t wait to see this proof of concept demo. Will you be able to share your project code? Would like to learn how you will use the VuForia library. Thank you!

          I definitely plan to discuss this in the future. It is on the calendar to go through in my membership site but I’ll also do a demo on YouTube before too long.

    What about a tutorial to include the Microsoft cognitive services into a hololens app. The computer-vision API would be very interesting.
