I remember when I talked about teleportation in the future, a lot of people frowned at the idea, but with companies like Microsoft and others, we can have an idea of what to expect albeit in like 10 or 20 years to come. Meet Microsoft’s Holoportation – a 3D, real-time hologram of someone who is a world away, but still interacts with you.
Holoportaion by Microsoft uses 3D motion capture and Microsoft’s HoloLens to “holoport” people from one place to another, It also has a special camera rig setup to allow you to see, hear and interact with real-time holograms of participants in 3D, as if they are actually in the same room with you.
The technology can be used live, but you can also record them in 3D and play them later. This could be beneficial if you need to revisit a memory – the recording will also allow you shrink down the 3D recording to watch them on something smaller.
There’s no telling how much Holoportation is going to cost, but we know it won’t be cheap, especially if you look at what it takes to set it up.
With inventions like holoportation, start preparing to slap people’s arm in the future to be sure they are real
