Minecraft, meet Hololens.

During Microsoft's 2015 E3 Press Conference, Mojang's Director of Fun, Lydia Winters, announced that Minecraft will be supported by Micorsoft's Hololens headset out of the box, both as a projected display and as an augmented reality version of the game.
During the presentation, Mojang presented a holographic demo of Minecraft that was projected on top of a coffee table. Using the Hololens, the player can watch worlds rise and fall in virtual 3D, right in front of their eyes. Other Minecraft players will be able to interact with Hololens players and their worlds, making this a valuable addition to the Minecraft universe, rather than just a Hololens exclusive version of the game.

Last month, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella noted to The New York Times that when Microsoft purchased Mojang back in September, that it was in part due to the potential benefits of marrying Minecraft and Hololens. "Let's have a game that, in fact, will fundamentally help us change new categories," Nadella said. "HoloLens was very much in the works [when Microsoft announced the deal last year], and we knew it."
CNET's Nick Stat experienced a demo of the Hololens version of Minecraft back in January, reporting that "the demo turns an entire room into a lively game world, punching holes into tables and through the walls to reveal interactive environments that can be changed with the tap of a finger."
