TED2016: It’s a phenomenal time to be human

By / Technical Fellow, Microsoft

Recently, I had the incredible honor of representing Microsoft at TED 2016 and sharing our vision with the leaders, creators, and thinkers in attendance. Taking the TED stage wasn’t just an opportunity to share my personal passion but a chance to talk about the incredible journey we are on as humans experiencing technology.

I invite you to take a step back from the 2D world of monitors and pixels, and explore with me what’s possible when technology enters our real world. See the first-ever holographic teleportation and dream about a world where we move the dial from the virtual to the real worlds. HoloLens is a part of that journey, but the technology speaks to concepts so much more than a product—the ability to connect, to overcome space and time to create meaningful connections with other humans. Most exciting of all, this is just the beginning.

This dream becomes a reality starting next week when we begin shipping the Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition.

It’s thrilling to consider where technology might take us in a future that is closer than it seems. Visit Microsoft Research for more information on holographic teleportation.
