Google Kept the Future of AR a Secret in Plain Sight at I/O 2024

As I approached the demo booths for Project Starline at Google I/O 2024, I saw the poetic words written on every door. “Enter a portal to another world”, “Feel like you are there even if you are not” – these words are often associated with VR experiences as they all have this magical “presence” -factor that tricks your brain into thinking about you You’re somewhere you’re not, but Project Starline isn’t VR at all.

Instead, Starline is a kind of conference table with a magical portal that leads to another Starline booth somewhere in the world. You sit at the table like any other desk or conference table and talk to the person (or people) on the other end, but the kicker is that Starline isn’t just a flat screen. It’s a lightwave projection that shows a 3D projection of the person on the other end, a realism I just wasn’t prepared for.
