Microsoft Research just released this amazing demo of a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high quality 3d models of people to be transmitted anywhere in the word in real-time. Combined with the HoloLens mixed reality display, this technology will make you feel like a Jedi…minus that annoying “Darth Vader being your father” kind of feeling.
