The creator of Microsoft's HoloLens just showed the first-ever 'real-life holographic teleportation'
Microsoft has been hyping its HoloLens technology for over a year. Reactions to demos of the helmet-like computer that projects images in front of you ("holograms," as Microsoft calls them) have been mostly positive, though a consumer version is not yet available.
HTC is also taking the Vive on a "world tour," letting members of the public try the VR headset for themselves. For dates and cities where the Vive is headed,check here.

Google has announced a new version of Cardboard, its virtual reality viewer. The latest Cardboard design will fit larger phones, up to 6 inches, and it's gotten rid of the magnet controller, replacing it with a cardboard button that will work with every phone. It also takes fewer steps to assemble. Just as importantly, Google has launched its Cardboard virtual reality app on iOS. The new app will let iPhone users explore city environments, use a virtual kaleidoscope, and view 3D objects from a museum collection. Until now, the official Cardboard app was available only on Android, where it has been downloaded over a million times. For developers that have created their own Cardboard-compatible apps, the software development kit also supports iOS.
