I recently purchased the brand new Raspberry Pi 2 with some accessories and sensors looking forward to install Windows 10 on it. Unfortunately at the moment it isn’t possible, but I want also to test it, so I decided to install Linux and Mono on it. This could be hard but then, thanks to the help…Details
Today is April 9th 2015 and in 20 days everything will be discovered. I’m writing this post to take stock of what we know about HoloLens, it’s API ad the way developers will create epic holo experiences. About the hardware: It is a self-contained Windows 10 computer equipped with: high end portable CPU and GPU Custom Holographic Processing…Details
On Win10 (build 10041) generated windows metadata I just discovered the Windows.Graphics.Display.StereoHeadMountedDisplay type.
Wow! What a beautiful, generic, name to describe a HoloLens like device type!
Here we go. At the end the day has come. After some months from its release date (November 2014) , it’s now possible to start developing for this new cool gadget.
Here are links for dev interested in developing for Microsoft Band:
What I was thinking is: Yes, cool device, cool experience… but what about sharing the same holo experience in a collaborative way? What about working at the same project, in team, where more than one user can interact to the same (holo)experience? What if I could also interact with it from my phone, my tablet…Details
I’m still investigating on Windows 10 API and i discovered something really interesting. If you look at the Windows.World.Sensors namespace you will find that there are two interesting types: SensorSource SensorSourceReader If you are familiar with the new Kinect for Windows V2 SDK you probably know the pattern to get information from various sensors: You…Details

It seems that on the build 9926 of Windows 10 there are two competently new namespaces: Windows.Human Windows.Human.Gestures Windows.Human.Hands Windows.World Windows.World.Lighting.Prototype Windows.World.Sensors Windows.World.Surfaces Windows.World.Surfaces.Prototype From an early analysis these two namespace will contain the new API for the HoloLens device and maybe fore the Kinect sensor also. Keep following us on our HoloLensDevs Twitter channel…Details
Microsoft has just released the Surface Hub app on the Windows Store. This app enable users to customize some features on Surface Pro 3 pen. This app will be expanded in the future to work with other tablet with pen, but at the moment it only works for Surface Pro 3 devices. You’ll be able…Details
There is a lot of misunderstanding about Natural User Interfaces. To some people, it’s just the way Apple feels we should use our phones and tablet. To others, and that includes me, it is a completely different way to look at the way people interact with machines. I would like to quote Douglas Adams from…Details
