Microsoft also share a number of open source projects, HoloToolkit, HoloToolkit-Unity, and Galaxy Explorer, which will accelerate your development of holographic apps, and give you an opportunity to contribute back to help others building on the platform. Developers can now bring existing UWP apps to HoloLens where they will work on 2D surfaces within the virtual world.

System requirements
The Windows 10 SDK works best on the Windows 10 operating system. This SDK is also supported on Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2. Note that not all tools are supported on older operating systems. Visual Studio 2015 also has hardware requirements.

The HoloLens emulator is based on Hyper-V and uses RemoteFx for hardware accelerated graphics. To use the emulator, make sure your PC meets these hardware requirements:
+ 64-bit Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, or Education (The Home edition does not support Hyper-V)
+ 64-bit CPU
+ 8 GB of RAM or more
In the BIOS, the following features must be supported and enabled:
+ Hardware-assisted virtualization
+ Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)
+ Hardware-based Data Execution Prevention (DEP)
GPU (The emulator might work with an unsupported GPU, but will be significantly slower)
+ DirectX 11.0 or later
+ WDDM 1.2 driver or later
