Microsoft has received over 3,000 HoloLens app ideas so far for new contest

There are apparently a lot of people who have ideas for apps that can be used for the Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headset. Microsoft started a "Share Your Idea" contest for the HoloLens a few weeks ago, and now the company says that over 3,000 app proposals have been submitted so far.

The announcement comes in the form of a blog post which mostly concentrates on Microsoft talking about how visual assets for any HoloLens apps should be created. That includes making all new assets, converting previous art to work with the HoloLens and capturing 3D objects and editing them so they can work with the app.

The "Share Your Idea" contest deadline is Jan. 11. The top three app ideas will be decided upon by a judging panel at Microsoft and put to a public vote. The winning app idea will be made by Microsoft and released as an open source project so other app developers can get some helpful hints.
