Minecraft Coming to Microsoft HoloLens

Microsoft is putting its 2014 $2.5 billion acquisition of Minecraft to good use. The console holder today announced a new version of the world-building phenomenon at its pre-E3 press conference.

Using the HoloLens headset, gamers will be able to do their world building in the real world — or so it will seem when they view that world through a HoloLens. In a live demonstration, Microsoft created a virtual Minecraft structure on a real table on its press conference stage. With the headset on, the builder was able to zoom in through windows in the structure to see inside the structure.

Pricing and release details were not provided.
