Microsoft Shows off ‘HoloLens’ Holographic Video Call at TED Conference
Microsoft is being increasingly more open with HoloLens after first showing the device to the world back in 2014. Not too long ago, the software giant made appearance on TED Talk where it showcased a demo of HoloLens in action.
HoloLens creator Alex Kipman, took TED Talks attendees for a ride by placing a fish-eye camera inside a prototype HoloLens device. With this, Kipman was able to show flowers blossoming and rain falling on the stage.
He also showed voyages to the Mooon and Mars, but possibly the most interesting thing Kipman showed at the event, was a video call between him and NASA scientist. For those who enjoy watching Star Wars, we’re certain you have seen what a holographic video call looks like, what Kipman showed attendees was very similar.
We have to say, the demonstration was phenomenal and it goes to show what Microsoft is truly capable of when the company has the right leader at the helm. Furthermore, this demonstration in our eyes, is the best yet since it is less about entertainment, but more about the “WOW” factor.
When will Microsoft release HoloLens?
No one knows as of yet, but we do know the software giant is making plans to sell the device to developers and enthusiast. Those who are interesting should prepare themselves to pay $3,000 for each unit. Bear in mind that when HoloLens is available for the general consumer, the price will likely be a lot different.
A bootleg video of the demonstration is now available.
