Near the end of this year’s Microsoft E3 conference, Microsoft showed a way to play mega popular game Minecraft that has never been seen before.

Using a combination of the Oculus Rift & Microsoft’s HoloLens technology, an impressive full 3D holographic playable version of Minecraft was shown. Thanks to this combination of technology, you didn’t even need a controller to play around, you could just use your hands. Check out the video below:

Of course, the issue with all this is how expensive a setup like this would be. And that was obvious when no talk of a release date or price was even hinted at for this technology. Odds are this is really just another proof of concept thing that looks incredible, but will be completely unaffordable to the average human being. So get excited at the potential of this technology and being able to play Minecraft and other games in this way, just don’t expect it to be readily available for at least several years if ever…
