Microsoft invents virtual teleportation

“Teleport me, Scotty.” Captain Kirk’s order to his chief engineer in the mythical Star Trek movie saga has made us dream since childhood of the teleportation of matter . Today we are a little closer to making that dream come true thanks to Microsoft’s engineering team.

Holoportation is a new research project from the Microsoft Research team that is based on the technology in its HoloLens augmented reality glasses , as well as in cameras that capture 3D images.

The latter are the ones that, based on our image and movements, are responsible for creating a high-quality hologram that can travel, together with our voice, to any part of the world in real time . That is: a technology very similar to what we have seen in the films of another legendary saga of science fiction films: Star Wars.

Thanks to Holoportation , we will be able to see, hear and interact with people on the other side of the planet as if we were in the same physical space as them. In addition, these encounters can be recorded and relived later in 3D. Of course, forget about the possibility of physical contact ; at the moment it is impossible.

To be able to capture the teleported person, it is necessary to equip oneself with the HoloLens augmented reality glasses , which allow virtual elements to be superimposed on the things that we really have before us.

Obviously it is not about the teleportation of matter that humans have been dreaming of for a long time, and Holoportation will still take a long time to reach the general public due to the amount of hardware it requires, but the Microsoft project proves that science fiction Why not? In many cases it can become real science.

This is how the light bulb was invented

History tells us that the famous inventor Thomas Alva Edison was the inventor of the light bulb, which is not true. Many searched for it and quite a few got it, but Edison was the one who turned that invention into a money-making machine.
