Another Star in Metaverse: Microsoft Mesh

Here’s Another Star in Metaverse: Microsoft Mesh

Metaverse turns out to be the most popular keyword. Everyone is talking about Meta or Roblox. However, one of the most contributed companies is Microsoft. Today, I’d like to lead you to understand more about the metaverse in Microsoft!

When it comes to office software, you might think of Microsoft Office or Teams. Microsoft is the best partner for many companies in today’s world. However, Microsoft isn’t delighted with its performance yet. So this company also put effort into innovating metaverse, which is HoloLens and Microsoft Mesh!

What is Microsoft Mesh?

It is a Mixed Reality(MR) platform, a mix of physical and digital worlds. As a result, people can experience without being limited by screens. One example is the AR filter on Instagram.

Microsoft Mesh can benefit the business to achieve better collaboration, especially for the pandemic situation after 2020. The platform could provide businesses with a ‘face to face’ but the safe working environment. The company also expects to combine Teams and Mesh for building a more convenient virtual workplace.


What Can Microsoft Mesh Do?

  • Animated avatars enable employees to interact with each other through dynamic avatar representations.
  • Interactive virtual meeting provides a more complicated experience in a 3D way in real-time and hand tracking.
  • In-app integrations with basic Microsoft functionality and even partnership with the third party.
  • Project immersion provide the meeting in a virtual room or working on 3D blueprints.

Microsoft Hololens, which is a holographic device. And this is different from immersive device.

  • Holographic device: you can see digital contents in the physical world (like the scenes in Iron Man)
  • Immersive device: create a totally virtual world without physical boundaries.
