Developer Overview

Before you begin development, be sure to review the Design Guidelines, which catalogs many of the lessons we've learned in developing convincing hologram experiences.

Lastly, as inventors and creators, we love developers! We'd love to share your creative work and credit you, but we have to know about it first. If you make anything that you'd like to share with us and the greater community, please do! We'd be happy to amplify creative endeavors, whether that be telling people about your gallery opening or boosting an interesting GIF on Twitter.
