Microsoft has launched a new application for its Mixed Reality Toolkit (MRTK). Called MRTK Examples Hub, the application gives developers tools to use sample scenes from the toolkit.

If you are unfamiliar with MRTK-Unity, it is a Microsoft toolkit that hosts several features and tools. Developers can access the project to accelerate their Mixed Reality creations built in Unity across platforms.

When using MRTK-Unity, developers have access to basic templates for creating applications for Windows Mixed Reality, OpenVR, and Microsoft HoloLens. The service also has an in-editor simulation for testing solutions in real-time.

It supports the following systems:

  • Windows Mixed Reality
  • Microsoft HoloLens
  • Microsoft HoloLens 2
  • OpenVR headsets (HTC Vive and Oculus Rift)
  • Ultraleap Hand Tracking

With MRTK Examples Hub, users can tap into these example scenes efficiently. WalkingCat has published a video highlighting how the application works:

Here are the app features:

  • Provides the basic building blocks for Unity development on HoloLens, Windows Mixed Reality, and OpenVR.
  • Enables rapid prototyping via in-editor simulation that allows you to see changes immediately.
  • Operates as an extensible framework that provides developers the ability to swap out core components.
  • Supports a wide range of platforms, including
