Hololens2 Connectivity with other non-hololens devices

Wilfredo 20 Reputation points

Can Hololens2 communicate with other (non-hololens2) devices? I am looking into using the vision capabilities from the Hololens as input to enable actions/motion from another equipment.

    Yes... you should be able to follow the various UWP networking guides to send data to other devices from the HoloLens. Here is a good primer to start looking at:

    Networking and web services

    Note though, that you will have to come up with a way to wrap the data in a format that is meaningful to the device on the other device to receive and process.

    If you are using a game engine such as Unity, there are also some built in networking features in addition to 3rd party plugins that help to make client network communication a bit easier
