Minecraft’s HoloLens Demonstration Was Most Impressive

By   /   1 year ago

Microsoft did plenty of announcements at its E3 2015 press conference that could be deemed impressive. However, none of them were as breathtaking as the live demonstration of its HoloLens technology.

Mojang’s Director of Fun, Lydia Winters, took stage to announce a Minecraft game being built specifically for Microsoft’s virtual reality headset. The live demonstration began with Mojang dragging the holographic projection on to a coffee table, signifying that players can choose to have their display on any surface they wish.

Using the HoloLens headset, the player was then able to watch the whole Minecraft world rise in front. From here on he was able to interact with it in full 3D, marking locations for other players, shooting down lightning strikes, and even lifting the world to see what secrets lied beneath.

Microsoft has yet to announce a release date for HoloLens. We have already seen Oculus announce the Oculus Rift for a release in early 2016, while Valve’s HTC Vive will be the first to hit markets later this year.

In related news, Xbox development head Kudo Tsunoda has announced that Microsoft is “working closely with Valve” to ensure that Windows 10 will be an ideal platform for Valve’s Vive headset. This announcement follows in the heels of Microsoft partnering with the Oculus Rift as well.
