Real-Time Holographic Communication Could Soon Be a Reality

holograms, technology
From Star Wars to Dead Space, holograms are a staple of the science-fiction genre, but it could become science-fact in the next five years according to experts.

Holography isn't exactly new, having been invented in 1947 by a Hungarian physicist, but technical limitations have always meant that any holographic appearances, such as Prince Charles' appearance at the World Future Energy Summit, had to be pre-recorded. However, advances in video compression and high speed broadband internet mean that real-time holographic communication may be commonplace in as little as five years' time.

Talking to UK newspaper The Telegraph, Ian O'Connell, director of Musion, a company pioneering the use of real-time holography, said, "This is cutting-edge stuff. One of the main uses we envisage is celebrity cameos at big conferences or concerts... a number of musicians we're talking to want to see this technology used to provide live cameo performances from stars at their concerts."
O'Connell went on to suggest other uses might include long distance learning, or education programs in the developing world.

There are a couple of snags that make the five-year time-scale seem a little ambitious, though. First and foremost is the guaranteed 20 megabit a second minimum broadband speed required, as well as the staggering £250,000 price tag for the equipment and the extra room needed to house it all.

O'Connell acknowledged these issues, but remained confident that it was only a matter of time, saying, "It's going to necessitate a change in architectural design for residential homes for it to be embraced fully. It's going to need a room that can accommodate the screening and delivery technology. But I think we're five years away from holograms being a ubiquitous, affordable tool."

I saw footage of the real time holographic report that was on faux or cnn.
and this one is is pretty eerie - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cou04-vOZx8

5 years, I can well believe it.

I read an article a while back that said they could fake the 2nd coming for religion and then also fake a mother ship landing for non religious. Thought it a bit weird back then, looks more possible now.

i had the idea of using micro sized TFT pixel /cameras arrayed on what would appear like a mirror. You would speak to whoever through what would appear like a hole in the wall:)

I do believe the antiChrist is to perform a few miraclesl too...

On another note, this could be very abused in mind control.

The technology exists to electromagnetically put voices in your head already,
and now they can make you see things too. God help the latest batch of MKULTRA
victims.

Umm... Ok? RT @TechCrunch Microsoft's Augmented Reality 3D HoloDesk Lets You Play With Balls In Real Time http://goo.gl/4gf82 by @johnbiggs via @AJEbsary

Quote:HoloDesk - Direct 3D Interactions with a Situated See-Through Display




Uploaded by MicrosoftResearch on 19 Oct 2011

Do you mind if Microsoft drops a little future on you like a ton of bricks? This HoloDesk uses a half-silvered mirror and a Kinect sensor to “see” your hands in 3D space then project visible objects on and around them, allowing you to juggle virtual spheres, play with phones, and generally get all Minority Report up in this piece.

According the the Microsoft Research Blog, this is only one of the upcoming 3D projects coming out of Redmond. Writes researcher Steve Clayton:

I won’t attempt to describe what it does in great detail, except to say that with Holodesk you can manipulate 3-D, virtual images with your hands. Whilst this is only a research project at this stage, I can envisage future applications in areas such as board gaming, rapid prototype design or perhaps even telepresence, where users would share a single 3D scene viewed from different perspectives. I know it sounds very Star Trek but this is not science fiction.

HoloDesk is a novel interactive system combining an optical
see through display and Kinect camera to create the illusion
that users are directly interacting with 3D graphics. A virtual
image of a 3D scene is rendered through a half silvered mir-
ror and spatially aligned with the real-world for the viewer.
Users easily reach into an interaction volume displaying the
virtual image. This allows the user to literally get their hands
into the virtual display. A novel real-time algorithm for rep-
resenting hands and other physical objects, which are sensed
by the Kinect inside this volume, allows physically realistic
interaction between real and virtual 3D objects.


Very Star Trek indeed.

Welcome to the double edged sword of motion sensing biometric technology in your living room. A trojan horse by means of the carrot of individual expression on a trendy new medium of creativity. ~from my related post on E3 2011: Kinect Fun Labs Election: Music Visualizer as it applies here as well.

Seems like there is a big push for getting more and more sensors, screens and cameras out there as outlined in that short Jesse Schell lecture on future social technologies way beyond Facebook and the blur between reality and the virtual from a couple years back.

The technology is there it's just making it pallatable and incrementing out the drip feed to make it most profitable. I mean like Apple couldn't have come out with all the features of an iPhone 4s easily 5-10 years ago.

I cry bullshit that the elite haven't had access to such technology sooner than us.

Its actually in my experience a rarity, unless you consider that innovation is only the place of governments and that markets and private businesses have no throughput for innovation. careful you have stepped into a paradigm minefield.

Governments like corporations have the advantage of scale. with that scale comes the problem of speed. you can do more damage but it may be longer to load that gun.
