Microsoft shows off augmented Actiongram videos captured with HoloLens

With the HoloLens dev edition pre-order program well under way, Microsoft is gradually showing off content that will be available for the augmented reality headgear. The latest is Actiongram and Microsoft has shown off some footage captured with the app.

The best part about Actiongram is it doesn't require much experience or a degree in video production to produce some interesting content with visual effects. Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda explained the new app in a blog post.

"Creators are able to develop their own unique holographic stories, in their world, to express their thoughts, ideas, and delight people. Actiongram allows people to create videos with holograms and advanced visual effects that would normally require expensive software and years of experience to do. Actiongram was built by a team of just 5 people in roughly 6 months This team was given a mission to help prove the robustness of the HoloLens development platform and the ability for a small team to make a high-quality holographic experience."

As well as the above video, check out some more below, published by select social profiles. If you're hungry for even more, there are other videos available via the blog post.

  • Please enable the video for Finland region.. It just says "title not found" and says "video not available in your country".. I don't know tho if it's about the uploader or this article, can someone tell?
    EDIT: It works actually, i've just had the problem earlier and have stopped trusting links saying "title not found" :D this seems so great, i wonder what people will really use this to.
  • Probably about your country :) (not really joking...germany restricts a lot of videos for example)
  • Heard of VPN? ------------------------------ On a scale of 1 to America, how free are you? :P  
  • Kudos' to Mr. Kudo for explaining
  • Sounds like this will cover what I need for holographic augmented cosplays. Looking forward to it.
  • I enjoyed seeing the T-Rex get knocked off the desk and go splat on its back. 10/10 would mess with T-Rex again.
  • Wonder what happens next in that last scene..
  • HoloLens is uber cool
