Installing HoloLens HoloToolkit into your Unity Project

Make sure you first read “Creating your very first holographic app in Unity” for setting up your hololens project.

The hololens team has created a useful “HoloToolkit” for use with Unity. It provides stuff like Spatial Mapping, client/service for sharing holograms among multiple users, cursors, gesture handling, spatial sound etc.

It’s pretty simple to install in to your project, so here’s the simple step-by-step:

  1. Go to https://github.com/microsoft/HoloToolkit-Unity and click “Download Zip” to download the toolkit.
  2. Right-click the downloaded zip, select properties, Check the “Unblock” checkbox and click OK.
  3. Unzip the folder “HoloToolkit-Unity-master\Assets” into your Assets folder in your Unity project.

Done!

You should now see all the HoloToolkit in your Project view (Unity doesn’t even need to restart, but will auto-detect the new files and import them).

I’ll be blogging about using the Toolkit in upcoming blogposts as I figure out how to use the pieces.
