The Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headset could have lots of different applications, and the company is now asking for ideas from the general public in the form of a contest. One of those ideas could be made into an actual HoloLens app.

Microsoft says:

"During this time, we'll guide you through development aspects, identifying which concepts would best leverage HoloLens capabilities and be great use cases, and sharing with you how you could build them. Your ideas can grow and evolve based on feedback from the team and from the community."

Microsoft will take HoloLens idea submissions from now until January 11. The team will pick what they feel are the top three submissions which will then be put to a vote by the public via Twitter:

"The winning idea will be created by our experienced HoloLens development team of designers, artists, and developers. You'll be part of weekly build reviews, Q&A sessions, and more."

The app will be released as an open source project once it is completed to help other developers make their own HoloLens apps. What sort of app ideas do you have for HoloLens? Let us know in the comments!
