People usually refer escort service as one specially kind of service. Here escort is literally escort, in general term. When we talk about holographic technology, everything applies.

Imagine you are on a business trip for a week or two, or just feel lonely, need company. You put on the HoloLens, fire up ABC Escort app. You can have a holographic someone on your couch instantly. I know it’s not real, but it looks real. You can talk to her/him the way to talk to a friend. She may sing or dance to you, or dance with you, and she can certainly keep you from boredom.

For the businesses who provide this kind of service, you may need an app, real people’s 3D models, also there need to be a real person behind each model, for chatting to be possible. The app need some serious work, but if there is a generic app, things can get easier.
