Software

Download and install HoloPlay Service to start working with holograms. Make sure to register HoloPlay Service when prompted to get device-specific updates.
HoloPlay Service, HoloPlay Studio, and some demo applications are already installed and ready to use on computers purchased directly from Looking Glass Factory.

Leap Motion Setup

Some applications are controllable via the Leap Motion hand tracking hardware (included). To use these features, please download and install the V5 (Gemini) version of the Desktop SDK.
🀏🏼Ultraleap software is already installed on computers purchased directly from Looking Glass Factory.
Once you've got Leap Motion Sensor plugged in and the Ultraleap Gemini tracking installed, launch the Ultraleap sensor setup & load the UltraLeap Tracking Software. This will allow you to use your Leap Motion Sensor with any compatible apps you have installed.

Test your Setup

This simple test can be run to ensure that hardware is connected and software is installed and configured:
When the above button is pressed, your Looking Glass 32" should show a 3D image of the Looking Glass Logo. To close this image, move your mouse over and click anywhere on the image.
If it appears with diagonal lines, there is an error loading the calibration data. Please retry the setup steps above to ensure it is properly configured, double check that all cables are plugged in and that your monitor settings are correct.

Common Troubleshooting Issues

Issue
Solution
If your PC is not switching on when connected to the Looking Glass 32" Display
Note that when you setup + switch on the PC, avoid having all peripherals connected at once. Only have the secondary screen connected. Then, after setup, you can connect all the other accessories. This is to prevent the PC from drawing too much power at once.
If you notice that your demos seem to be running to the left side of the display and there is something wrong with how they look
Reset the Looking Glass display with the on & off with the side power button.
If you notice that some media in HoloPlay Studio is running at a slower frame rate
This could be for one of two reasons. The first is to ensure that you have Vertical Sync enabled ->
  1. 1.
    Click the Start button or Windows icon
  2. 2.
    Type NVIDIA control panel into the search bar
  3. 3.
    Press Enter on your keyboard
  4. 4.
    Click Manage 3D settings
  5. 5.
    Under I would like to use the following 3D settings, scroll down until you see Vertical sync
  6. 6.
    Select Vertical sync to choose Force on from the drop-down menu
Second, ensure that the graphics card is targeting all the applications that you've installed including the web browser you're using (we recommend Chrome). For a detailed breakdown of how to set this for your PC, follow this guide here.
If USB-C ports on the back of the 32" PC aren't functioning properly.
Install the latest chipset drivers for the intel compute element. This only applies to the 32" PC purchased from Looking Glass Factory.
If the Azure Kinect is not switching on
Re-connect all the cables and make sure that the Azure Kinect USB-C cable is connected to a USB 3.0 port (these are usually blue).
​
If that doesn't work, right click the icon after downloading and run Depth Recorder as System Administrator
