Who needs a tape measure when you have a HoloLens? Use this creative app to draw shimmering lines around your room, accurately showing the dimensions of each line. Find distance, area, and volume. This app is beautiful in its simplicity.
The menu seems a bit too small to read clearly, and the menu seems permanently stuck wherever the user happened to be gazing at the moment the app launches. Also, we had to read the fine print in the app store to discover that clicking on the measurements will toggle between metric and standard units.
Holo Measure allows the user to set points with an air-tap to measure dimensions, areas and volumes. “Dimension” will place two points and close to the second point, it will indicate the exact dimension. “Area” works the same way, you can put a polygon of four points to calculate an area. “Volume” can be calculated by placing a polygon of four point and the fifth point is the height.
Voice command can also be used, by calling out the command to enable or disable. Other options: Is by clicking on the dimension text, which will change and set the units to imperial or metrics. “Drop all” will drop all the point, “Clear all” will delete all points also the dropped ones, “Map” will enable or disable the Spatial Mesh.
