Azure mixed reality

Mixed reality for every developer and every business

Demystifying mixed reality

Mixed reality is a blend of the physical world and digital world. In mixed reality, digital information is represented by holograms—objects made of light and sound—that appear in the space around you. Through artificial intelligence, these holograms respond to commands and interact with real-world surfaces in real time for a more natural and intuitive experience. In short, mixed reality helps you bring your work and data to life when you need it, where you need it. Start building secure, collaborative mixed reality solutions today using intelligent services, best-in-class hardware, and cross-platform tools.

Intelligent services

Make the world your app canvas. Build applications with spatial awareness to enable 3D training, predictive equipment maintenance, design review, and more in the context of your users’ environments.

Best-in-class hardware

With HoloLens 2 and Azure Kinect DK, our best depth sensors and computer vision are at your fingertips, so you can build for your most critical scenarios and focus on what matters: code.

Cross-platform support

Engage larger audiences with documentation and support for mobile and HoloLens devices. With development tools for a broad range of platforms, you’re empowered to build your way.

Trusted cloud security

Step confidently into mixed reality with enterprise-grade privacy and compliance at your back. Easily spot and close down threats or gaps with built-in security tools and intelligence.

"The 2D screen cannot convey a problem that's so complicated. You add augmented reality to that, and you can understand what's really happening."

Paul Mihalic, Distinguished Software Architect, Bentley Systems

Create more helpful, relevant experiences using intelligent services

Unlock what every human is an expert at—the three-dimensional, physical world around us—with Azure mixed reality services.
