Microsoft's new 'holoportation' tech lets you jump into someone else's reality -DAVID NIELD, Science Alert

You've probably already heard about the HoloLens, Microsoft's much-hyped new augmented reality (AR) headset, but details have just been released about a cool new feature coming to the hardware called 'holoportation'. Basically, it lets you jump into someone else's reality as a full-sized, three-dimensional hologram, just like in the movies. So if you're having a business meeting, for example, remote staff members can appear in the same room together, or if you're having a video call with grandma, she can stand right in front of you rather than appearing on a flat laptop screen. It feels like technology straight from the future, and it's coming soon to an AR headset near you.
