Microsoft shows us how they’re able to re-create iconic buildings as holograms in this fascinating video.

In it, we meet Yves Ubelmann who’s the founder of the company Iconem. They make digital versions of famous pieces of architecture from around the world. This means that anyone can experience it, no matter where they are. It’s also used as a detailed record of the building, which could be used to restore it in the future. Using the Microsoft HoloLens, Yves is able to create an immersive experience where people can explore these famous buildings from a first person perspective.

In this video, we get to look inside the famous Mont Saint-Michel abbey in France. Yves Ublemann’s grandfather helped restore the abbey, so he’s carrying on the work of his grandpa. But instead of restoring brick and mortar, he’s using pixels and pictures. It’s a great story that shows us the range of possibilities that could come out of the holographic age. Who knows, maybe in the future you’ll be able to visit the Colosseum, Notre-Dame and Machu Picchu, all in the comfort of your own home.
