Do you have ideas for software/plug-ins/ librairies for collaboration with the Microsoft Hololens 2?

Hi !

I'm doing my bachelor project with the Microsoft Hololens 2, specifically I'm doing a technical analysis regarding the different toolkit/plug-ins/software available for doing collaboration (not remote collaboration but local).

I'm especially looking for some that work with unity as this is the software I'm using to build/deploy my applications on the Hololens.

Here's is some of my research, if you have comment regarding it or you maybe think that it can be good to add something I would gladly discuss it with you.

As you see did find all unity supported plateforms, so even if it's not for unity I will gladly take your recommandation.

Best regards

Hello there! It's great to hear that you are working on a bachelor project with the Microsoft Hololens 2. Collaboration is an important aspect of using Hololens, and I'm happy to help you with some ideas for software/plugins/libraries that can help you with your project.

For local collaboration, you can check out the HoloToolkit for Unity. It provides a set of components and features that allow you to create collaborative experiences with Hololens. It includes the SharingService which allows you to share holographic data with multiple Hololens devices and the InputModule which enables users to interact with shared holographic data. Another toolkit worth considering is the MRTK (Mixed Reality Toolkit) which provides a set of building blocks for Unity that makes it easier to create mixed reality applications.

In addition to these toolkits, you can also check out the SpectatorView plugin which enables you to record and stream the view of a Hololens to a secondary device. This can be useful for collaboration purposes where multiple people can see what the Hololens user is seeing on their own device.

Overall, these are just a few ideas to get you started. There are many other software/plugins/libraries available that can help with collaboration on the Hololens 2. If you need help exploring further, don't hesitate to reach out to TM Speed Test company that specializes in Hololens development. Good luck with your project!
