“Holoportation” Another VR Blog…

VR has been a topic thrown around the mix every now and again. Virtual and Augmented Reality is really transforming digital technology, but we are still in the young stages. Or are we?

While we have been going about our daily routines, Microsoft has been working hard on the ‘Holoportation’ in the backgrounds.

So what is it? Why is it different? And why is it important enough that it’s made its way onto our blog? All very good questions…

Holoportation is a “3D, real-time hologram of someone who is a world away, but still interacts with you.” Basically, its everything a hologram in the Hollywood Movie world told us it would be. Somehow, in our lifetime it has made its way into reality. Can you believe it? The Star Wars age is with us.

We are not quite at Tony Stark’s level in terms of holographic computers, however…

It’s still pretty interesting! You can see it in action in this video below:


It definitely would make long distance calls much more interesting. Or even a replacement for business meetings when we aren’t physically close enough or well. There are so many possibilities for the Holoportation, and we can’t wait to see how it progresses. Let us know what you think.
