Microsoft creates a new form of communication in the style of «star Trek»
Microsoft is working on a new kind of communication between people. The company calls it Holoportation – term fun, but entirely justified, given the use of glasses HoloLens.
The I3D research group in Microsoft invents a way to create a living hologram of the other person, which can be anywhere in the world. «Magic» is performed using multiple 3D cameras in the room that in real time catch the movements and speech of a person. The image is then projected into the other room where the second party communication in the glasses HoloLens can see the object and interact with it. To gain more insight, watch the video below.
It is obvious that for the realization of the Holo-teleportation requires different device with serious processing power, inaccessible to the ordinary user because of their high cost. If we see this technology in the form of the finished product, certainly not sooner than in a couple years (at best), but the future will surely look that way.
