What Mesh Will Offer

Microsoft Mesh offers a holographic space that users at different locations can enter into and interact with each other (provided they have the appropriate headset). At first, users will appear to each other as virtual avatars, Microsoft said. But the vision is to eventually offer “holoportation” capabilities, so that users can appear as themselves in the Mesh space, according to the company. Microsoft Mesh “enables you to interact holographically with others with true presence in a natural way,” Nadella said during his keynote at Ignite.

“For example, I can join a birthday celebration with my extended family in India, interacting as if we were physically together without any screens between us. Or I can meet my colleagues on the other side of the world--collaborating as though we were in the same room--again, with no screen mediating our interactions,” Nadella said. “It‘s pretty mind boggling to imagine, but this is the future we are building.”

In terms of business applications, Microsoft offered the example of a group of engineers meeting inside of the Mesh virtual space to collaborate on 3-D models.
