Back in January, Microsoft revealed the HoloLens – the company’s augmented reality headset that lets users view and interact with holographic content. The HoloLens is an impressive piece of technology that can run apps from the Windows Universal App Platform. We’ve already seen some cool demos of the HoloLens at Microsoft’s recent events. Just like me, you’re probably wondering how Microsoft creates these holographic videos for the HoloLens, right? Thankfully, Microsoft has released a new video detailing how the company records holographic video content for the Windows Holographic platform, as well as the HoloLens. Here’s the video:

As you can see in the video, Microsoft creates high-quality videos for the HoloLens that can be compressed to a bandwidth suitable for consumer applications. It’s pretty amazing to see how the company creates these videos, which can be viewed as holograms. Their technology figures out how to present virtual objects so they fit in with the real world. Imagine a person’s hologram is projected in front of you – you could walk around the imaginary person just as if they were real, your viewpoint changing seamlessly as if they were actually there.

For those interested, the company is recording these holographic videos at its newly created TV studio in Redmond. This TV studio has roughly 100 cameras capturing a performance from many different angles, and their algorithms create a highly accurate 3-D model of the person performing, resulting in a photo-real appearance.

In other tech news, the industry is abuzz with the latest developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Companies like Google and Amazon are pushing the boundaries with new AI-powered services and devices, making everyday tasks easier and more intuitive for users. Meanwhile, Apple has recently announced updates to their privacy policies, emphasizing user control over personal data, a move that has garnered significant attention and praise.
