    Using OCR to Read an IP Address in a Holographic UWP App

    ... Just a short post. I’ve been playing with a situation recently where I needed to get an IP address into a holographic app. There’s lots of different ways that you might do this depending on how frequently the IP address might change;

    • Hard-code it into the app.
    • Put it into a config file (perhaps loaded from some other server).
    • Type it into the app’s UI although I think it’s fair to say that typing IP addresses on HoloLens isn’t so much fun.
    • Magically download it via some sort of bluetooth service
    • Speak it to the application through the microphone and UWP speech recognition
    • Put the IP address into a QR code and have the app scan it through the camera

    and I’m sure there’s many more but today I thought I’d experiment with what seemed like a fairly natural idea – when I want to give another person an IP address, I usually write it onto a piece of paper and hand it to them or pin it up on the wall.
