How did Microsoft place the hologram on the motorbike in the HoloLens intro video?

edited February 2019 in General

The first time Microsoft introduced the HoloLens there was a scenario with a real motorbike, which wasn't finished and still in design. So they showed the tank of the motorbike with the HoloLens and played around with the height.

To solve this, the motorbike has to be detected and the hologram has to be exactly aligned to it. As the HoloLens itself has no object detection, this is only possible with Vuforia. But at this time Vuforia wasn't avaible officially as a solution, and it isn't as exact as it is shown in the video.

The question to Microsoft is: How did Microsoft place the hologram on the motorbike in the HoloLens intro video? It is just a fake solution?

I want to develop with the same mechanism (place holograms on real objects), but I've got no reliable ways to solve it.

Here is the reference of the introduction video (starting after 40 seconds):
