Microsoft HoloLens Holoportation

Microsoft has a new trick for their HoloLens technology; "Holoportation" - a way of interacting with lifelike representations of people in another physical location. A sort of virtual reality videophone, if you like.

The avatars are not video in this demo, they are 3d models reconstructed at the viewing end.
...Microsoft execs describe [Holoportation] as "a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed, and transmitted anywhere in the world in real-time."
