Reuters explores PORTL's "holoportation" machine that can beam AI-powered holograms into your living room. Users can communicate with life-sized holograms of friends and family in real-time. The machines are phonebooth sized and can be plugged into any wall outlet. People can remotely project their holograms into the machine using a video camera and a white background. Using StoryFile's AI technology, the system can also allow users to interact with recorded holograms of historical figures or family members who have passed away. The machines begin at $60,000.
