Watch Rihanna show off her moves in mixed reality (video)



While Microsoft has mainly focused on the productivity benefits of mixed reality, the technology has a massive potential for entertainment also.

This is an angle being explored by mixed reality company Octosense, who focus on creating realistic 3D environment extensions and effects, as well as bringing naturally moving, lifelike interactive characters into users’ physical world in real-time.

Their current tech demo is a performance by pop star Rihanna set in an intimate club-like setting, which provides a compelling demonstration of their real-time shading technology, which reacts to environmental lighting and produces photo-realistic yet interactive results.
