Microsoft demos 'holoportation' 3D presence tech with HoloLens.



The video embedded above shows cool new HoloLens tech from Microsoft Research, which can create 3D models of people in remote locations and project them into the room you're in -- tech that could be used for games as well as Skype-like video conferencing, the use that it is put to in the demo.

HoloLens, at $3,000, is still far from being a consumer product -- but this demo shows the appeal and its potential for game developers.

What's also notable here is that there are views of the in-device experience periodically in the bottom-left corner of the window, giving a more "honest" look at what the experience will actually feel like.

It's also worth noting that Meta has developed similar remote-meeting technology for its AR glasses, which we got to try out at GDC -- and which worked well. That company is currently taking preorders for its new dev kit at $949.
