Microsoft Mesh is an MR platform that uses Microsoft Azure. By sharing the platform, you can easily hold meetings with people far away ...

It is possible to share virtual reality (VR) space.

'It's magical that two people can see the same hologram,' Kipman said.

Microsoft Mesh will also implement avatar creation in the coming months. By applying Microsoft Azure, spatial rendering and real-time remote sessions are possible.

Microsoft Mesh will be compatible with various MR / VR headsets such as HoloLens, and will work on various devices such as smartphones, PCs and tablets.

Third-party apps for Microsoft Mesh have also been developed. For example, OceanX, a non-profit organization that supports marine education and publicity, announced a collaboration with Microsoft Mesh and announced the Mirosoft Mesh compatible app 'Holographic Labo'.

Holographic Labo can call and browse marine life models and data in laboratories and offices around the world from the ship, and can talk in real time while sharing the VR space with other researchers.

In addition, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon GO, announced a collaboration with Microsoft with the aim of bringing new technology to the boundary between digital and the real world and providing an experience that connects people in a different way. Niantic has released 'Microsoft Mesh version of Pokemon GO' as a proof-of-concept demo, emphasizing that it is 'not for consumers'.

In addition to having Pokemon at your feet, it seems that you can properly recognize Pokemon that other players are taking.
