Why develop for mixed reality?

Two people looking at digital image

Develop for AR, VR, and everything in between

Mixed reality blends the physical and digital worlds, and Windows Mixed Reality supports two device types with similar technology on that spectrum: HoloLens and immersive (VR) headsets with motion controllers.

Learn one set of tools, build for many devices

The software, APIs and core building blocks are shared across Windows Mixed Reality, so you can invest in one platform to build experiences for HoloLens, VR headsets, or even experiences that target both.
