Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) announced that it has created an augmented reality system called MirageTable that allows people to share a 3D workspace despite being in two separate locations.

A potential use for MirageTable includes new ways to play video games.

MirageTable consists of a curved, white piece of plastic, a 3D video projector and a Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Kinect depth camera sensor.

Users are also required to wear shutter glasses (NVIDIA 3D Vision) while using MirageTable so that they can see the image being projected in 3D.

The Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) research team said that, “In our system, the user can hold a virtual object, move it, or knock it down, since all virtual and real objects participate in a real-world physics simulation. The unique benefit of this set-up is that two users share not only the 3D image of each other, but also the tabletop task space in front of them. Simulating realistic grasping behaviours given depth camera input remains an open research problem. While we are still very far from an implementation of a working version of Star Trek’s Holodeck, MirageTable shows the potential of the projector/depth camera system to simulate such scenarios”.

Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares were at 30.74 at the end of the last day’s trading. There’s been a -0.1% change in the stock price over the past 3 months.
