Remember those futuristic scenes of holograph conference calls from Star trek, Star wars, any other science fiction movie and even Tupac. Well what was once movie fiction is fast becoming reality. Much like the robots that they are building that will one day end up enslaving us!  tupac, star wars, antoinespeaks

As the video below shows Microsoft have been developing new ways to use the VR headsets and augmented reality. No doubt this technology will soon be the must have tech item. Maybe, one day this technology will make Skype and FaceTime look like a Nokia 3310 in the an iPhone6 world; outdated and a little boring.

The potential applications for this new technology seem pretty limitless. From holoporting(not a real word yet) for work, family and friends. It has to be said, some lonely guys in the comment section noted this technology could be used for adult related sexual activities such as sexting and ‘adult’ movies. Much like the alternative uses for robots; until they one day revolt from being a virtual sex slaves.  With that said, Pornhub already has 360 degree videos (i’ve heard). Asimo GIF

With that said, watch the video below to see this innovative technology and let us know how you think it could be applied.  FYI here is the technology press release from Microsoft.

‘Holoportation is a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high-quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed and transmitted anywhere in the world in real time.264043-000007

When combined with mixed reality displays such as HoloLens, this technology allows users to see, hear, and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in the same physical space. Communicating and interacting with remote users becomes as natural as face-to-face communication.’ Microsoft
