Holographic technology has the potential to be a game changer for a lot of industries and may probably significantly influence our daily lives in the near future.
Holographic technology is the process of creating 3-dimensional pictures. Typically, holograms are a photographic recording of a light field that is used to display 3-dimensional images. For decades, we have seen numerous real-time applications of holograms. From the science fiction movie Star Wars and tv series like Bones to Stephen Hawking appearing as a hologram in Hong Kong, the technology has created unusual 3-dimensional interactions and manipulations for people. A few years back, Julian Assange made a surprise appearance in the US at Nantucket Project. He ended his speech by a virtual high-five. Amazon has plans to release hologram smartphones with a 3-D holographic display. The holographic technology is creating path-breaking innovations, which will significantly affect our daily lives, making it more interesting. The global market for Holography is expected to reach 5.50 billion U.S. dollars by the year 2020, highlighting the growth of the holographic technology across the various industries.
Holographic technology has made astonishing advancements in various fields. This technology has been used by the military, where the technology has helped soldiers to get a 3-Dimensional view of a terrain. Additionally, it has helped them with military training and in giving soldiers real-life instances for training.
We have a large volume of data generated every day. It is important to store this increasing amount of data safely. The holographic technology is used to store this unbelievable amount of realistic information securely. For instance, holograms allow reconstructing any data even after it is destroyed. Furthermore, holograms are difficult to make and hence are used extensively in security and fraud detection. Your credit card contains a small rectangle dove transmission hologram that displays a 3-dimensional image as you move from side-to-side. We have numerous applications of this technology and even artists are using them to bend and cut down space and to combine still objects to produce 3-dimensional works and sculpt pure light.
Holographic technology has already brought celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Tupac Shakur back to life. Companies in the USA are already involved in creating computer-generated performances of celebrities and artists who are not amongst us in person. In future, there may be far more digital forms of entertainers. The hologram technology used to create computer-generated celebrities using a 150-year-old technology called Pepper’s Ghost, which reflects 2-D images through a piece of plastic. To obtain images that can be seen from multiple angles, high-resolution 3-dimensional images of dead celebrities and artists are essential, which are practically not available. Holographic technology allows you to watch holographic callers popping out of the phones. In future, there is a chance that users can swipe screens of their cellphone in the air. Moreover, holograms help doctors to have a better sense of human anatomy. The holographic technology can be used to render 2-dimensional images into 3-dimensional floating projections, which will be very useful in treatments and surgeries. Moreover, it can be used to train medical students with holographic images and videos. Furthermore, it will allow doctors to zoom in and out of human body parts to have clear images of internal organs. Holographic technologies can revolutionize not only entertainment and gaming sectors, but also industries like healthcare, space research, real estate, architecture, and many more.
