Squire,  and DoubleMe help connect Harrison, an 11-year-old boy with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and his Grandpa using a HoloLens and Holoportal through the medium of holographic mixed reality. Because of Harrison’s condition, his movement is increasingly restricted making it difficult for him to see his Grandpa.

The meeting of grandson and grandpa becomes possible by marrying Microsoft's HoloLens, the self-contained mixed reality glasses with DoubleMe, the world’s first HoloPortal™ that converts 2D videos into dynamic 3D models in real-time. Together, the technologies enable users like Harrison to see a hologram of their loved one such as their grandfather and have a conversation as if they were in the same room.
