Microsoft's "Holoportation" will virtually beam you into another room

The technology requires 3D cameras and a virtual realty headset

Microsoft is bringing a whole new level to remote social interaction with "Holoportation."

The prototype technology allows users to see, hear, and interact with others remotely as if both are present in the same physical space. 3D cameras capture and record a users movements and construct a temporally consistent 3D model. That data is then compressed and sent out to be reconstructed anywhere in the world.

Because interactions are recorded, they can be replayed and manipulated (such as by shrinking), giving users the sense of reliving that moment in time.

Researchers have now made the system mobile by installing it in a car.
