Augmented reality is taking new forms as it approaches the general public. Over the last few years, we have lived like this technology has given life to diverse experiences completely different from what we had experienced so far. In turn, the main technology companies have begun to bet on different ways of facing this new world of experiences. And Microsoft is one of the main players in the development of this technology.
With its HoloLens and what until a while ago was known as Windows Holographic, now known as Windows Mixed Reality, the Redmond company has been very busy taking advantage of the technology developed for Kinect for augmented reality. In addition, thanks to Xbox Game Studios, you have in your hands some of the best video game studios in the world, among which is Mojang, creators of Minecraft. And of course, they could not resist joining both concepts.
Minecraft has been appearing on lots of different platforms since its launch. It has incredible versatility, and it feels good even in new technologies such as virtual reality. For this reason, it seems that they have been working very hard to bring the game to augmented reality. This could be a new attempt to bring to the market the experience that was shown a few years ago at E3 with the HoloLens, although saving the differences, of course.
The new Microsoft experiment would be presented on May 17 on its official website, and although it has the ingredients to become a success, it will have to compete against other bets such as Pokémon GO or Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. For now, we will have to settle for the teaser that the company has presented on the occasion of its annual conference for developers, the BUILD 2019. And it would not be bad that it looked the same as in the video.
