Get A Load Of Microsoft's Holographic Vision For Minecraft's Future

Get A Load Of Microsoft's Holographic Vision For Minecraft's Future

Microsoft's biggest reveal during today's Windows 10 event was Project Hololens, a wearable visor that will insert holograms into a person's field of vision. If their hype video is to be believed, it's going to be just the thing to make Minecraft completely immersive. And completely inescapable.

The presentation from today's event showed a video that highlighted Microsoft's ambitious goals for Hololens, which basically amounted to a real world with interactive holograms overlaid on top of it. Interacting with Minecraft was one of the uses shown for Hololens. Implementation like this is probably years away but it sure looked cool.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

      I want to believe it. But I've been hurt before :(

    Gotta love these ambitious and totally unrealistic concept videos.

    That being said , if the final concept is as smooth and responsive as this, then I'll be impressed.

      I saw a guy doing stuff with a Surface table sort of like that. Had a blueprint on a phone, then moved it to the table and 'pulled' it up to make it 3D. I'd bet that it was a pre set up demo though.

    Yeah, just get Kinect to work, and I *might* believe that this is coming in the next 20 years.

    Regardless of the tech's actuality, this is direct competition with all the VR in development. It's not like developers will be able to develop for AR and VR concurrently.
