I found this video on YouTube that seems to be an old, official video from Microsoft. The uploader claims that it's a prototype for the scrapped project Blackcomb/Vienna that later became Windows 7. Does anybody know what this actually is?

Well, it literally tells you in the beginning. It's some Microsoft Research thing. Nothing to do with Blackcomb, really.

This feels like something that if updated would work nicely as a VR environment - maybe some of the code (or at least programmers) got picked up into Windows Mixed Reality.
