    Hi

    There are a few discrepencies between our current supported scenario (desktop) and a Hololens/VR scenario:
    1) The camera point of view - we currently provide a 'user facing' scenario while in Hololens/VR the camera is 'world facing'
    2) Our detection process is compiled to a standard PC processor and not generalized to work with propriety hardware
    3) We currently support .net framework apps (as can be seen in our samples repo https://aka.ms/gestures/samples ) while Hololens, I believe, requires apps to be UWP

    There is a quite simple solution to circumvent these dependencies in the short term till we bridge these gaps:
    Run Project Prague one a front facing camera connected to a standard PC and relay gesture registration requests from your UWP app to a proxy app you run on the PC (using websockets or any cross device communication).

    Please let me know if you want any more details
