Microsoft Solicits App Ideas for HoloLens

by Developer.com Staff

Microsoft will build and open source the winning ideas.

Microsoft has launched a new Share Your Idea website that asks people to contribute ideas for HoloLens apps. The company is holding a contest to identify the best suggestions and says that Microsoft engineers will build the winning app.

"Ultimately, the HoloLens team will pick our top three among the most popular ideas and let the community vote on which experience we will actually build and release to the world! We will work to bring your idea to life and show you every step in the journey — and when we're done, we'll deliver the source code back to the community," Microsoft said. It added, "Once the winning idea is identified, an experienced HoloLens development team comprised of designers, artists, and developers will build out the application and share the process with the community through weekly build reviews, Q&A sessions, or any other suggestions you may have."

The contest runs through Jan. 11, 2016.
