While the covid-19 pandemic has subsided, it appears work from home and remote work is here to stay.

In a new video, Microsoft has uploaded a demo of JoinXR, a platform by Fracture Reality, which allows users to enjoy a mixed reality presentation with a real sense of presence, no matter where they are.

Microsoft has published a full session titled “The Future of Holograms” featuring this content and a panel with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital which can be viewed here.
