The research team of Microsoft seems to be kicking up some crazy new innovations, first up was the OmniTouch we covered. Now, we’ve got a video of a brilliant holographic system, that Microsoft calls the ‘holodesk’. Using Kinect, what these researchers have done is create a small area (underneath the glass) where users can interact with items from the digital world. Head over to the video below and we’re sure you’ll be amazed.

The technology is obviously yet in its nascent stages, but it’s giving us a glimpse into what the future holds for us. As can be seen from the video, physics of the virtual objects are extremely close to their renditions and the way we interact with them in the real world. That in itself deserves worthy recognition, and we can fairly say, it is the closest anybody has ever got in trying to bridge the gap between the digital and the real world. A commendable effort in terms of it being a research project, but the real world applications can be extremely vast. Where do you think can this technology be implemented – any particular games, video chatting or even navigation systems? Let us know in the comments section below!
