«Mixed Reality, Holoportation, Holographics— terms once only used by sci-fi enthusiasts referring to a futuristic utopia, are now becoming reality.

Microsoft Mesh, the company’s new “Mixed Reality” Platform, is a cutting edge medium that is attempting to make these concepts real.

Microsoft describes the platform as a means to:

  • “Feel Presence: Connect with new depth and dimension. Engage with eye contact, facial expressions, and gestures. Your personality shines as technology fades away.”
  • “Experience Together: Digital intelligence comes to the real world. See, share, and collaborate on persistent 3D content. This common understanding ignites ideas, sparks creativity, and forms powerful bonds.”
  • “Connect from Anywhere: Enjoy the freedom to access Mesh on HoloLens 2, VR headsets, mobile phones, tablets, or PCs – using any Mesh-enabled app.»
