During Microsoft’s Windows 10 briefing today, the company unveiled its new hologram-based head-mounted display (HMD), the HoloLens, along with the Windows Holographic concept. After discussing the wider applications of the new device, the company stated that Skype will be brought to the HoloLens.
During the trailer detailing the features which are accessible through the HMD there are images of Skype calls appearing as if they are being projected onto the walls. This could mean that Skype calling could become a lot freer while being able to move around while connecting with other people, starting up Skype calls wherever the person may be. At the same time it could allow people to show exactly what the person is seeing at any given time.
Release details for the technology are yet to be revealed. VRFocus will keep you update on HoloLens news.
