All You need to Know About Hologram Technology

What is Hologram Technology?

In very simple terms, a hologram technology would be a three-dimensional holographic projection that cannot be seen with the naked eye, only with a special device such as a light or laser enabled computer. The hologram itself can be viewed in any possible angle, as the user walks past the display, thus the object appearing to change and move realistically.

As holograms are three dimensional in nature, it means that objects placed behind the display will also appear three-dimensional when viewed through the appropriate device. These hologram technologies are currently in their developmental stages and the applications for hologram technology are limitless. The hologram technology is still at its infancy and is set to revolutionize the field of computing and gaming.

History of Hologram Technology

The first holographic display was used in the movies in the year 1989, where robots appeared to float in air. The movie featured the adventures of Ripley (actress Anne Hathaway) who finds herself in a secret lab, where she uncovers a group of holographic screens that have been placed by scientists. From here, she learns that the screens are living holograms, which react to her movements and show her a world like no other. The holograms then help her in her mission to find her father, who she mistakenly believes is dead. Through the use of a series of special lenses the holographic display alters its appearance depending on the subject viewing it, thereby creating a whole new world that is not limited to a single point in time.

Evolution of Holographic Technology

Over the last few years hologram technology has grown to include more sophisticated display devices, which are capable of creating realistic and vivid 3d images. To date, there have been holographic displays developed for everything from the corporate headquarters of a major company to an outdoor sporting event in Iowa. This technology could soon be applied to more traditional media forms as well.

Realized through recent developments, hologram technology is currently being used in conjunction with digital signage to create an up-to-the minute, high-quality interactive display. These holographic displays allow real-time images to be projected on the surface of a flat-screen television, or onto a wide-screen LCD or plasma television. In this way hologram technology allows for mid-air interaction between a television and its audience.

Use of Hologram in the Medical Field

Holograms are also widely used in the medical field to create more effective medical treatments. For instance, neurosurgery uses holograms to present the medical findings of a surgical procedure in a rapid, easy-to-follow fashion. Orthopedic surgeons also often use holograms in conjunction with computer generated images to create a digital image of a human body that can easily be modified based on changes in the patient’s position. Medical holograms are also being used in education applications. For example, architects use holographic projections to create a 360-degree, three-dimensional view of structures that would not normally be possible without the aid of a video camera.

Hologram Consumer Applications

Hologram technology is also growing in the application for the consumer. It is now commonplace to find holographic displays adorning the front doors of department stores, restaurants, hospitals, and corporations. In some instances, holographic technology is being used to replace the conventional teller at bank tellers. In this way the bank teller is no longer needed for day-to-day transactions, but can instead complete transactions with the help of holographic software. Another application of hologram technology has been found in ATM’s. In this way, rather than using a teller to provide cash to customers, the ATM can present the customer with a hologram of an electronic check, which the teller would then verify against the signature on file.

Home Entertainment Industry

Holograms are even finding their way into the home-entertainment market. Blu-ray disc players are now using holographic images to show movies, games, and media on the same disc that they are playing on. This allows users to play media across multiple devices with the same quality. Home gym equipment has also been hit by the hologram technology with treadmills and exercise bikes displaying 3d images of the runners or riders on the machines. Even automobiles now have hologram technology installed in their dashboards, helping passengers keep an eye on their speed or direction. Automobile companies are currently working on holographic displays that will allow drivers to make turns at the driver’s opt; this would be helpful in congested traffic.

Prediction of Holograph

There is no exact prediction what the hologram technology will eventually look like or how well it will perform. Right now it is a closed-box process where the inventor and developer of the software need to collaborate in order to achieve the desired results. One benefit of hologram technology that we do know is that it will replace the need for a third-party observer in the rendering process. Since the object beams can be undocked from the source, there is no need to use a tripod or any other physical medium to record the data. This open architecture also makes it easier to modify the recorded data and make it playable on a wide variety of computing devices.
