During Microsoft’s E3 presentation, the company was expected to mention something about its augmented reality hardware HoloLens, but while it didn’t exactly show off a ton, it did show off a new addition to Minecraft that is in development for the system.

During the live demonstration, it was explained that the game can be streamed from the Xbox One to HoloLens, and projected on to a wall. If that isn’t your thing, you can move the gameplay to a flat surface like a table.

The playing experience has been designed to be taken off the wall and create new world virtually anywhere. You will also be able to issue commands and actions, not only with the controller, but also using your hands and voice.

Once projected onto a table, you will be able to walk around the whole world and get a better bird’s eye view of the playing surface, as well as look underneath the top soil.

No release date has been given for HoloLens or the Minecraft compatibility.
