Did Microsoft just reveal Minecraft 2?
At Microsoft’s Windows 10 conference tonight, the company revealed an exciting new revolution in technology – Microsoft HoloLens.
Essentially, Microsoft just unveiled really awesome looking Alternate Reality glasses that bring holographic images to life around you. While there were many practical uses for the device shown – which looks like Iron Man tech blended with Google Glass, and the ghost of Project Milo thrown in for flavour – one thing really caught our eye.
The images below show off a game which looks incredibly similar to Minecraft, being played in Alternate Reality. Is this why Microsoft purchased Mojang in 2014? To bring a sequel to the hugely successful Minecraft literally to our living rooms? We can only bloody hope so.
Imagine being able to craft worlds with your hands and then stream it to Xbox One and a Windows 10 device for other people to interact with. Amazing.
The first images are below, and demonstrate a Microsoft rep creating a chimney with the touch of his finger.
We have reached out to Microsoft for a comment, and will have plenty more on Windows Holographic for you tomorrow.
