Microsoft offered another mind-bending demonstration of the HoloLens augmented reality headset at E3 on Monday, firing up a holographic version of Minecraft on a real world coffee table.
The demonstration showed how one player roaming through the game on an ordinary touchscreen would be visible to another, much luckier player wearing the HoloLens and looming over the landscape like a giant. The audience cheers as the HoloLens player pinches and pokes the landscape with his fingers and leans in for a peek inside of a house.
Microsoft built an entirely new version of Minecraft for the company’s HoloLens headset, company reps said during the demo.
