A Microsoft Hololens proof-of-concept application that displays stock information about companies in the surrounding environment.

This application was originally developed at HackMIT in September 2016, winning the "Best use of NASDAQ's Data On Demand API".

We continued working on it until we demoed the application to NASDAQ's executives in January 2017.

For more information about the project, view our Devpost page.

Build & Installation

  1. Clone this repo into a empty folder
  2. Create a folder name "Build"
  3. Open up the project in Unity 5.50f3
  4. Click on File -> Build & Run
  5. Build for the Universal Windows Platform, selecting the "Build" folder
  6. Open up the solution file (found in the "Build" folder) in Microsoft Visual Studio
  7. Select "Release, x86, Device" to deploy to the Microsoft Hololens


  1. Wearing the Microsoft Hololens, stare directly at a well-known logo and perform the Air Tap Gesture
  2. A card should open up. You should see a Graph of stock prices and other information relevant to the logo. If logo detection fails, the card should contain a message saying so. Tap on the middle of the card to close it, then try again. Note: If the stock did not trade on that day, you will not see a graph. That is ok, just continue.
  3. You can perform Air Tap Gestures on the Left and Right Buttons in order to change the date range for the displayed stock informartion.
  4. If the Loading Animation appears, wait for stock prices to be retrieved from NASDAQ's API in the background. The card will change as soon as it's done.
  5. You can Hover over certain points on the graph to view more detailed information about that Point.
  6. Tap on the Middle of the card to close it.
