Channel 9 – Lance Larsen on Microsoft HoloLens…
Feel that I did the Hololens justice – very excited to be one of the guys that gets to show it off – and help educate others on what a revolutionary device the Hololens is…
Thanks David Giard for a great interview! Fantastic conversation!
Download the latest versions of Unity for the Hololens!
Note – these are based on the Unity Betas but you need to make sure to get the Hololens specific version ( which is currently 5.4.0b16 HTP ) – where HTP => “Hololens Technical Preview”
This specific release “…fixed crash resulting from prolonged use of the manipulation gesture”!
For all present and future holonauts, here’s an easy list of important HoloLens resources to keep close at hand…

A new age of technology is upon us – and – those that enthusiastically embrace the emerging Holographic, AR and VR technologies will be positioned to guide and lead others into the Reality rEvolution! Join your fellows and connect together on HOLOSOFT.NET! Follow on Facebook or Twitter!
Next stop on the HoloLens Presentation Tour is the amazing Chicago Code Camp CCC!
With some of my favorite developers and organizers anywhere – thanks Min, Lwin, Jason, Brett, Angela and the whole team that makes this event possible!
Giving two presentations at CCC…
Hands on with the HoloLens (11am)
HoloLens: A rEvolution of Reality! (4pm)
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Fourth stop on the HoloLens Presentation Tour at one of my favorite creative spaces in Madison – the Madison VR Meetup group!
Talked at 6pm – then DEMOED all the way until 10 PM! – when the HoloLens’ batteries finally died! Awesome time – and quite a few Holo Converts. :)
More talks on the way! And keep adding more to the HoloLens Presentation Tour – if you or your company want to get Hands on with the HoloLens – just reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
Greetings fellow Holonauts! Here are Step-by-Step visual instructions for setting up your Unity 3D application to run on your HoloLens!
Ready to get Holographic! This will be the start of a series of articles on making your first Unity 3D Holographic experience, ie. game :)
As detailed in “A Holonaut’s Guide: HoloLens Development Resources” – check out “Download HoloLens Developer Tools” – once you have those installed you’re ready to go!
Also check out the newly launched HoloSoft.Net for the latest HoloLens / AR / VR news!
NINE hours of driving to and from Minnesota.Over ONE HUNDRED excited attendees with standing-room-only at my presentation.Well over FIFTY attendees and fellow speakers trying out my HoloLens for the first time!Attendees to my HoloLens talk laughing at all my jokes — PRICELESS… :)
For all my attendees – as discussed, check out “A Holonaut’s Guide: HoloLens Development Resources” – and everyone can certainly reach out to me with any questions or insights! email@example.com
Thank you to Jason Bock (@jasonbock), Brandy Favilla (@brandyfavilla), Mike Hodnick (@kindohm) & Judah Gabriel Himango (@judahgabriel) for putting on a great Twin Cities Code Camp!
First of many HoloLens presentations kicks off tonight at LCNUG (Lake County .NET Users Group) — http://www.lcnug.org/
“HOLOGRAM” (noun): an image that is projected in a way that makes it appear three-dimensional.“AUGMENTED REALITY” (noun): superimposed computer-generated images on a user’s view of the real world. Aka “MIXED REALITY”“HOLOLENS” (noun): the first fully untethered, holographic computer, enabling you to interact with high-definition holograms seamlessly blended with your world.
Hello Developers! (or should that be “Holo Developers!”)
Are you ready to dive into Augmented Reality? Ready to see how we can build our own Holographic world overlay where we walk with Dinosaurs and float among the stars?
Ready to see not only how we interact with holograms but how those holograms react to us? Me to…
This will be a from scratch, step-by-step, lots of coding experience! Using the latest Visual Studio, Unity and C#.
Join Lance Larsen (www.lancelarsen.com) fresh back from the Microsoft //BUILD conference — where HoloLens was center stage! Lance is avid community speaker -and- president of the Madison .NET developer community (www.MADdotNET.com).
Lance speaks passionately on the dawn of a technology that could fundamentally change how we live and interact with wearable computers that enhance our perceptions of the real world! Join him in the revolution of reality!
Lance is the owner of HoloSoft (www.HoloSoft.net) and consults with companies to build the future with the latest .NET technologies — if you have a AR / VR project you or your company needs assistance with, let him know. :)
Lance is also one of the original organizers for That Conference (www.ThatConference.com) – August 8th – 10th, 2016 – the original Summer Camp for Geeks in the Wisconsin Dells!
“So this evening I got to experience the HoloLens for the first time. My first thought before putting it on is there is no way this is as good as they have showed. I have to say I’ve been surprised completely. So much so that I literally want to drop $3,000.00 on a dev kit for myself to get on this bandwagon.”
“Thanks Lance for letting me take it for a spin.” == You’re welcome! :)
