Microsoft melds the real and virtual with new Mesh platform

• by Michael Irving

To make remote meetups a bit more personal, Microsoft has unveiled Mesh, a "mixed reality" platform that lets people work and play together as virtual avatars overlaid on real-world spaces.

Microsoft made the announcement at its Ignite digital conference, with speakers virtually dropping in via "holoportation" – a buzzword of the company's own invention that means a person is basically livestreamed as a 3D hologram into another user's headset.
