Windows 10 Creators Update takes 3D to the next levelThe free 2017 upgrade to Windows 10 puts an emphasis on virtual and augmented reality, letting you scan in real-world objects and interact with them as virtual "holograms."
I'm gonna show you how we can capture this castle, this sand castle with our Windows capture 3D experience. [BLANK_AUDIO] Now here you can see the sand castle is taking shape in front of me. I'm not only taking something from the physical world and making it digital. I'm also taking something that would have been temporary and making it permanent. We all know that as the sun goes down at the end of the day, you'd have to leave your sand castle behind. But with the magic of scanning We can take this temporary memory and save it for ever. Today I used HP Windows phone, the X3, but we envision this experience on Any device. Now there it is. I just made a 3D object using my real world for inspiration. I'm excited to announce that with the Windows 10 Creators Update, we are introducing Paint 3D. That exact same sand castle that I just scanned moments ago is now a 3D object in paint. Now, pauses, we have got a camera here that allows you to see the same holograms that Taj can see just from his viewpoint. That's right, Megan. Here on HoloLens, you have the same awesome community that we showcased earlier today. And in it you can see Megan's creation. But what's really exciting is this is mixed reality. We can take this creation and put it right into this space. So I'm gonna go ahead and select it. [BLANK_AUDIO] And I'm gonna place it right about here. Awesome. Looks good, Megan. Nice job. Now this creation started as a real sand castle that we captured, edited and enhanced. And now it's back here on stage as a hologram. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC]
