Halo Fan Turns Microsoft's Cortana Into Actual Hologram

Usually, Cortana the personal assistant is just a disembodied voice. One Halo fan decided to take his Cortana to the next level by building a rad hologram appliance that responds to your queries.

The whole thing is still a work in progress, creator Jarem “untitled network” Archer says, but it’s still pretty cool to watch it in action:

The animations were built with a Unity 3D app, while the lights controlled by a built-in Arduino. The device can also track your face, so Cortana is always looking in the right direction.

How long until Microsoft also goes the hologram route for Cortana, you think?

That’s actually pretty awesome. They need to hire this dude.

The only thing that needs improvement are the response times, the ability for the projection to appear anywhere in a room, animations and baby, you got a stew goin’!

I’m also loving how it actually displays information the guy asked the program.
