Holoportation is a type of 3D capture technology which allows high quality 3D-models of people to be reconstructed, compressed, and transmitted anywhere in the world in real-time.
The system demonstrates high-quality, real-time 3D reconstructions of an entire space, including people, furniture and objects, using a set of new depth cameras. When combined with mixed reality displays like HoloLens, this technology allows users to see and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in their physical space. Communicating and interacting with remote users becomes as natural as face to face communication.
This technology involves great potential in connecting people who stay miles apart!
