Today's project from Proteus is a community created Template for creating HoloLens applications with UE4...
So here I propose a template to easily develop for the HoloLens on UE4.
Video I made of this: https://youtu.be/KxvAm2qNJ0Q (note that the spatial mapping is not excellent near a pool and during the night... that's why the holograms are a little shacky)
A very important note: This is based on an branch of Unreal currently and actively developed by a very dedicated Microsoft team.
For version 1.0, gesture are not enabled yet and spatial mapping is used with limitations.
Expect a rapid development while we'll follow the team and enable features after features.
I'll try to do my best to speed up the development, but hey the goal here is to put the community talents together to finally have a well-working, fully-enabled Hololens template. This will be also very handy for Windows Mixed-Reality HMDs which are
coming to us in a near future.
However I keep a focus an Hololens since I personnaly think that spatial mapping and hand-gestures recognition is the future of VR/AR.

To install as a template, just unzip into the appropriate templates directory like (install dir)\Templates for launcher version. Launch a new project, and you'll find it in the blueprint section.
To open as a project file, open the project with the launcher or directly from the .uproject file.
Deploy Package to Hololens
Deploy from Windows Device Portal
