Bring holograms to life in your world! Attend HoloHack Boston from June 21 to June 22. Microsoft has partnered with BostonAR to bring you a two-day experience, where you’ll form teams with other experienced AR/VR/MR developers, designers and artists to collaboratively create your next mixed reality experience. Technical resources from the community and engineers from Microsoft and Unity will be on-site along with HoloLens and developer devices.
Attendees should have previous experience developing for AR/VR/MR and/or with Unity. Space and devices are limited. Apply today!
Who can attend?
We are looking for developers, designers, sound engineers, directors, story tellers and artists with experience creating on AR/VR/MR platforms.
What skills should I have?
Artists familiar with UX design in VR/AR/MR, 2D and 3D design skills are always an asset. Developers who know any of the following should consider joining: C#, Unity, Universal Windows Platform development.
What if I don’t have a team or an idea?
We highly encourage you to build with a team (max team size of four). Participants are not expected to have a fully formed team or concept prior to the event. We will include time for team forming and networking prior to official hacking start if you need to find a team to join.
Do I need a HoloLens or computer?
No need to bring a HoloLens — in fact if you have one, we recommend leaving it at home to avoid confusion on-site. We will have a HoloLens available for each team. We do, however, recommend if you are going to deploy to the HoloLens that you have a Windows 10 PC. We will have a handful on site, but it helps to have your own setup. We will send out a requirements & setup list ahead of time.
Is there a prize?
One team will be selected to receive a prize. Projects will be reviewed on originality, use of HoloLens features, technical difficulty, use of Microsoft services and APIs and how polished the hack is.
