Microsoft mixed reality guru Alex Kipman believes communication will be VR’s killer app Video Description

We put out a demonstration with our partners at Cirque du Soleil at a conference we had for developers earlier this year. What we usually show there on stage—it’s a set of workers wearing HoloLens, a see-through device, and they’re in the middle of doing something. In this case they were building a show, moving objects around. But when they asked someone to teleport in, that person teleported in as an avatar by putting one of our Windows Mixed Eeality headsets on. If you’re teleporting somewhere in a business context, you don’t necessarily want your physical environment to be there. You want a virtual environment, because you’re trying to help someone. In this case the person was trying to say, “Hey, move that there. Not that prop, that’s different.”
