Skype is working on 3D technology now. A senior executive of the company has confirmed BBC that "Skype has developed 3D video calls." BBC has taken an exclusive interview of Mark Gillett, Microsoft's corporate vice-president for Skype. This interview was taken to celebrate Skype's 10th anniversary. 

Mark said, "We've done work in the labs looking at the capability of 3D-screens and 3D-capture. We've seen a lot of progress in screens and a lot of people now buy TVs and computer monitors that are capable of delivering a 3D image."

But he also explained that this facility will not be launched early. In fact many years or a decade is required to implement it. The reason for this delay is that "the capture devices are not yet there," said Mark. This 3D video calling facility is tested for Skype but in lab only. Microsoft wants to be sure about the ecosystem and capability of devices before launching it.
