MR Design Labs Unity

Mixed Reality Design Labs

This repo is where Microsoft’s Windows Mixed Reality Design team publishes sample apps and experiments. If you are looking for official toolkit, please use Mixed Reality Toolkit

MRDL is based on HUX which has an input system that is not compatible with Mixed Reality Toolkit.

Sample app - Lunar Module Sample app - Periodic Table of the Elements
Lunar Module sample app Periodic Table of the Elements
Lunar Module demonstrates how to extend Hololens’ base gestures with two hand tracking and xbox controller input, reactive objects to surface mapping and plane finding, and simple menu systems. You can use this project’s components to create your own mixed reality app experience. Periodic Table of the Elements app demonstrates how to use Object Collection to lay out an array of objects in three-dimensional space with various surface types. You can also find the example of using Fluent Design elements such as light, depth, motion and material.

Supported Unity version: 2017.1.0f3

The current supported version of Unity is Unity 2017.1.0f3. If you are looking to have support for previous versions of Unity please check under Releases.

Important: Requires submodule MRDesignLab

As soon as you clone the repo, init and update submodule with git command:

cd MRDesignLabs_Unity
git submodule init
git submodule update

To update the submodules you’ll still need to pull from master by either going into the individual submodule directory and doing a git pull or by doing the following command to do pulls on all the submodules:

git submodule foreach git pull

This will add HUX and related tools under Assets/MRDesignLab/ folder

Mixed Reality Design Labs(MRDL) and Mixed Reality Toolkit(MRTK)

We are in process of migrating foundational UI controls and building blocks from MRDL to MRTK. Below you can find the list of the components that have been merged.

Ported UI controls and building blocks, now available on MRTK
