This list is crazy enough to look like science fiction novels, and all of them are available today.
Since Jules Verne invented hologram technology in 1983, technology and entertainment companies as well as users have been dreaming of this innovation. Since we witnessed the hologram of Princess Leia, one of the characters in the Star Wars series about 40 years ago, interest in the technology has increased. Unfortunately, for many years, such a development was limited to the world of science fiction. Because it seemed impossible to create a 3D image.
Nowadays, we can finally say that we are approaching our dreams about hologram technology. Scientists around the world continue to develop new ways of using laser, modern digital processors and motion sensors. Thanks to these developments and advances, our daily use of technology, media and social media seems to be subject to a radical change in the near future.
Some of the hologram technologies that these developments have already introduced into our lives are listed below for you:
1- Table Holograms
The device allows you to control it by hand by projecting a flat surface, and is assisted by motion sensors and scanning cameras. This product called Hololamp, although not as cool as the other hologram technologies we mentioned, makes up for this lack of ease with its use.
2- Physical Hologram
Despite being somewhat aloof from the traditional hologram idea, this innovation called inForm was created by MIT researchers. This technology, brought to life by researchers, can animate the shapes of people and objects on 2-dimensional surfaces. To achieve this, the column powered by up to 900 motors is used, which can create shapes in real time. Above all, this technology creates an incredibly cool and impressive image.
3- Propeller Type Holograms
With the primitive versions of the technology we are talking about, you may have come across them in theme parks or special events. Combined with small propellers and high-tech RGB (R: Red, G: Green, B: Black) lightings, these holograms can change color in milliseconds. When rotated at the right speed, images can be brought to life by creating a 3D effect with this technology. Thanks to a recently developed device called Hypervsn Wall, the aforementioned technology can be taken one step further and images with a high resolution and greater than 3 meters can appear in the space. All this is done using only 65 watts of energy.
4- Aerial Burton Laser Plasma Holograph
Until recently, all the holographic samples needed an aid, such as glass, smoke or water, where light could be reflected. But this is no longer the case. Aerial Burton, designed and developed by the holographic reflector, can create 3D images in the space using plasma laser. This work, which can be considered as primitive, reveals that despite all its deficiencies, light can be seen without the need for a reflective surface. The technology, which makes 1 kW infrared laser pulses, focuses its pulses on a certain point in the air through the 3D scanner and creates plasma by ionizing the molecules in the air. Although technology still needs a lot of work and development, it stands out as a major step towards the introduction of holographic images from nothing into our lives.
5- 3D Volumetric Technology
This holographic technology, perhaps the most impressive of all we’ve talked about so far, uses volumetric holograms, very high-speed digital light engines, and precisely focused volume-generating engines to project nearly half a million light spots into a certain space every second.
This volumetric technology reflects hundreds of digital sections of the image onto the reciprocating surface synchronously and simultaneously. When light photons strike the screen, they emit a cross-sectional view where it should be, and for our eyes these formed layers become a single three-dimensional image. Moreover, no special glasses or equipment is required to see this three-dimensional image.
