Microsoft Mesh is a new technology that reproduces meeting participants as if they were holograms. Star Wars style, like when the Jedi Masters meet and you see the different character holograms as if they were in the same room. However, everyone is at home or in the office, but thanks to this new technology, it will seem that they are next to you during the meeting.
This virtual reality room, Microsoft Mesh, has already been tested by Guy Laliberté. He didn’t believe it could combine the magic of show business with virtual reality. But, with the help of Microsoft Mesh, he was able to put on a show for his fans within this mixed reality platform. The performer and presenter were moving lights, while the audience were avatars within this holographic world.
How Microsoft Mesh Works
Microsoft Mesh is a technology called mixed reality because it is part of virtual reality and augmented reality. Microsoft Mesh uses virtual reality to impersonate the screen, that is, to create a virtual room or environment. At the same time, it implements augmented reality through people’s avatars.
When you enter these virtual meetings, you will see three-dimensional representations of the participants, as if they were characters in a video game. And, with HoloLens technology, this remote interaction is made possible.
Thus, the operation is very simple because it would be done throughout an application created with Mesh and HoloLens. The user will create his avatar to personalize it so that it resembles him as much as possible. Then, with this avatar, the user will enter a meeting in a virtual room.
The Internet has allowed great advances in our daily activities. A few years ago, you had to use maps to get around a tourist town, but today your cell phone takes you everywhere. Additionally, purchases can be made online without the need to visit physical stores. Players noticed this change the most. They can go online to play with players from all over the world. In addition, it is no longer necessary to travel to physical entertainment areas. For example, casino players can have the same experience as in a real casino thanks to live dealer casinos. They are available at most online casinos and the game is more immersive because you can talk to them. All table games are available for betting, from poker to roulette. Moreover, you can play from anywhere as they are mobile friendly. In the world of work, he showed us that it was possible to work from home without any problems, giving employees greater flexibility and better performance.
So, Microsoft Mesh is a project that is still in development, which implements other technologies like Azure to keep users safe and helps the company HoloLens 2. The app only works with Microsoft AR headsets, but they expect this to change in the future. This technology and this project has been developing for years, like any other technology developed through advancements in technology and the internet.
For example, when it comes to creating project security, they partnered with Azure to ensure privacy. Mesh bases its service on the Azure cloud, a company dedicated to data processing and artificial intelligence. Testing at the moment is done through AltspaceVR avatars. In the future, it is expected that non-VR and non-AR devices will benefit from this Mesh technology.
Benefits of Microsoft Mesh
Microsoft Mesh is a technology developed for companies; a platform that facilitates their meeting. If you construct a building with Mesh, you will be able to see scaled plans and a virtual representation of the final product. In the same way, developers such as engineers will also benefit as they can show their creations through 3D models.
The big advantage of Microsoft Mesh is that the feeling will be that all meeting participants are in one place. Mesh allows them to have an interactive meeting without physically being in the same building or city. They will only have to connect to the server, put on their virtual or augmented reality glasses and that’s it. They will be in a business meeting.
Little by little, Microsoft Mesh will be refined. When it reaches its final stage, many companies will want to implement the platform as a working tool. It has great potential as Mesh will change virtual meetings and remote working.
