As demonstrated by Microsoft research manager Shahram Izadi, you can appear in real-time anywhere in this world to facilitate a life-like conversation with HoloLens.
His image is captured in 3D by cameras placed around the room. This is then stitched together, compressed and transmitted so someone else can see, hear and interact with him as though he’s right there with them.
ou can even playback previous interactions, as though “walking into a living memory,” and miniaturize the content to make it easier to consume. “Imagine being able to virtually teleport from one place to another,” he says.
HoloLens is still $3,000 to buy today, which still puts it kind of out of reach.
