Transparent screen displays free-floating “holograms” in your home

by • July 27, 2016 • No Comments

Even preceding a realistic-looking Tupac Shakur was “resurrected” on-stage for a live performance, holograms have captured the minds and imaginations of most. But the gap between fantasy and reality has narrowed significantly over the past few years. HoloVit, which not long ago proved a prototype, is seeking funds on Indiegogo for its very own holography process. HoloVit recording sets and screens are turn it intod to capture and display holograms projected of smartphones, tablets, laptops, or TVs.

There are number of various hologram technologies already being turn it intod. Some, like Microsoft’s “holoportation,” involve complicated 3D video capture processs while others, such as Holho’s “hologram generator,” employ easy mirrors set upon mobile devices to turn it into the illusion of moving, three-dimensional images. HoloVit is a bit of a cross between the two, with the way it displays floating video on transparent screens.

The process is turn it intod to work with devices without the requirement of a projector or special equipment. In a sense, a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or TV becomes the projector as it faces a HoloVit screen. When set at the optimal distance (for most results), images and video come to life, actually in brightly-lit rooms – a challenge common to most projectors. One caveat is which just content which has been formatted as a hologram can work.

Holographic images displayed on HoloVit screens aren’t true 3D (i.e. 360-degree) and can just be saw on the side receiving the reflections. But with dim lighting, these vertical see-through screens practically disappear to leave full-color visions floating in air. And unlike the Holus “holographic” platform, one is not going to require to dedicate an entire tabletop in order to enjoy the show.

On the other hand thousands of holographic videos are widely on the market, users have the version to record and share their own holograms. HoloVit’s modular recording set showcases a stand and a black, laminated background. Any type of camera – actually ones of smartphones or tablets – can work so long as no other background (other than the special one included in the kit) is shown in the recording.

HoloVit’s Indiegogo campaign has raised 21 percent of its US$18,000 goal, with another month left of funding to go. Screens come in three various sizes, with pledges starting at $79. Higher tiers bundle recording sets, and all pledge levels include the Hologram Battle mobile app game (iOS and Android) as well as links to hundreds of videos which can be saw as holograms.

Last December, the team had that successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign to create the HoloVit prototypes and prove which the technology/concept is possible. This commence on Indiegogo can be considered as the full production run. So if making goes according to plan, backers can assume shipments of HoloVit recording sets and screens as early as this September.
