Holograms & Volumetric Displays News and Discussions

Post by Yuli Ban »

This thread is dedicated to holograms and hologram-like technologies, from Pepper's Ghost to volumetric displays.

Augmented reality holograms can be crossposted here too.

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future

Are volumetric displays something we might expect to see become commonplace in the next few decades? They look like holograms for all intensive purposes and feel very futuristic.

New technology lays groundwork for large-scale, high-resolution 3D displays

by The Optical Society

Researchers have developed a prototype display that uses projection to create large-scale 3D images with ultra-high definition. The new approach helps overcome the limitations of light-field projection, which can create natural-looking 3D images that don't require special 3D glasses for viewing.

"Our optical design could make it practical to replace 2D flat panel displays with 3D images for digital signs, entertainment, education and other applications where 3D images provide a significant enhancement," said research team leader Byoungho Lee from Seoul National University in Korea. "Our design could also be modified to provide immersive experiences in movie theaters, for example."

In The Optical Society (OSA) journal Optics Letters, the researchers describe how they combine two different light-field display technologies to project large-scale 3D images with almost diffraction-limited resolution. The new display is autostereoscopic, which means that it produces different 3D images so that the image can be viewed from various angles.
