Windows IoT Device
Rapidly prototype and build your Windows IoT solutions on a variety of devices running Windows 10 IoT Core. Windows 10 gives you powerful tools that let you develop fast and deploy to your device.
Leverage the power of open frameworks like Connect-the-Dots to help connect your devices to Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure allows you to implement great solutions by leveraging advanced analytics services.
Connect with other makers to share code and make contributions through GitHub. Join the community to influence future releases of the SDK.
Streamlined + Powerful
Code combines the streamlined UI of a modern editor with rich code assistance and navigation, and an integrated debugging experience – without the need for a full IDE.
Kinect brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways, with no controller required. Simply step in front of the sensor and Kinect recognizes you and responds to your gestures.
Available for multiple platforms, including Windows and XBox.
Microsoft HoloLens is the first fully untethered, holographic computer, enabling you to interact with high‑definition holograms in your world.
Microsoft HoloLens is made up of specialized components that together enable holographic computing. The optical system that works in lock-step with advanced sensors. The HPU that makes light work of processing a large amount of data per second. All those components and more enable you to move freely and interact with holograms.
Microsoft HoloLens has advanced sensors to capture information about what you're doing and the environment you’re in.
See-through holographic high-definition lenses use an advanced optical projection system, generating multi-dimensional full-color images with very low latency so you can see holograms in your world.
The HPU is custom silicon that processes a large amount of data per second from the sensors. Microsoft HoloLens understands gestures and where you look, and maps the world around you, all in real time.
Download the Windows SDK and the HoloLens emulator: With documentation, tutorials, and forums, developers with or without a device can begin building holographic apps using the Universal Windows Platform.
Microsoft MakeCode is a framework for creating special-purpose programming experiences for beginners, especially focused on computer science education.
Microsoft MakeCode is based on the open source project Microsoft Programming Experience Toolkit (PXT).
Microsoft MakeCode is the name in the user-facing editors,
PXT is used in all the GitHub sources.
The main features of MakeCode are:
- a Monaco-based text editor with enhanced, robust auto-completion and auto-correction powered by TypeScript.
- extensibility support to define blocks via TypeScript or C++
- markdown-based documentation system with built-in macros to render block snippets
- an ARM Thumb machine code emitter
- a command-line package manager
