Cards on display in Yu-Gi-Oh for HoloLens pre-alpha build

Ever since Microsoft launched a community last December letting users submit ideas for its HoloLens wearable computer — essentially a real-life Duel Gazer — gaming enthusiasts have been requesting that the holographic technology be used to bring Yu-Gi-Oh! and other tabletop and collectible card games to life. Now, one developer has stepped up to the plate and delivered some eye-catching results.

Earlier this week, General Heed, a.k.a. Generalkidd, shared a video of his “Yu-Gi-Oh for HoloLens” project (h/t ANN), his attempt at transforming the virtual dueling experience seen in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and manga from fiction into reality. In his pre-alpha build of this game, General Heed is able to display his cards in front of him, floating above the ground. When he selects a monster he wants to play, its card lies flat on the ground and a three-dimensional model of the monster appears above it. General Heed is able to walk up to the monster and view it from various angles. Very cool!

General Heed is looking for software developers and 3D modelers to join him in his quest to realize this unofficial Yu-Gi-Oh! game, so if you are a fan with these talents, I’m sure he would love to meet you. For the latest updates, check out General Heed’s blog.
