We've built a mini map for Hololens so you can navigate your space.

With mixed reality's holographic interplay  relying on your scope of vision, you never lose track of your place in  the world. And if you're not even sure where that place is, our dev  Anthony just created a localized, GPS-style Hololens app that can help. HoloMaps is a mini map that
