How do you build a holodeck?
What would it be like to step in an ordinary room and feel a gentle, computer-generated jungle breeze, with trees swaying nearby that you could touch?
Creating high-resolution full-color moving holograms in 3-D
Three-dimensional (3D) movies, which require viewers to wear stereoscopic glasses, have become very popular in recent years. However, the 3D effect produced by the glasses cannot provide perfect depth cues. ...
A guide star lets scientists see deep into human tissue
Astronomers have a neat trick they sometimes use to compensate for the turbulence of the atmosphere that blurs images made by ground-based telescopes. They create an artificial star called a guide star and ...
Multicolor meta-hologram produces light across entire visible spectrum
3-D digital holography of moving objects at a million frames per second
A million frames per second has been achieved in 3D digital holography of moving objects. The method, developed at Kyoto Institute of Technology in Japan, could be used to analyse high-speed phenomena, including ...
Life-size 3-D hologram-like telepods may revolutionize videoconferencing in the future
A Queen's University researcher has created a Star Trek-like human-scale 3D videoconferencing pod that allows people in different locations to video conference as if they are standing in front of each other. ...
Security ID cards with built-in holograms (w/ Video)
Making holograms look more real
(PhysOrg.com) -- Although human vision is capable of perceiving objects in three dimensions (3D), we spend much of our day looking at two-dimensional screens. The latest televisions and monitors can trick ...
Holograms set for greatness
A new technique that combines optical plates to manipulate laser light improves the quality of holograms.
Tying the knot with computer-generated holograms: Winding optical path moves matter
In the latest twist on optical knots, New York University physicists have discovered a new method to create extended and knotted optical traps in three dimensions. This method, which the NYU scientists describe ...
Holograms: You can find some real ones here
I've seen some holograms recently. Hologram Tupac Shakur, you are no hologram.
(Phys.org) —'Smart' holograms, which are currently being tested to monitor diabetes, and could be used to monitor a wide range of medical and environmental conditions in future, have been developed by researchers.
Nanotubes used to create smallest ever hologram pixels
(Phys.org)—A breakthrough in the use of carbon nanotubes as optical projectors has enabled scientists to generate holograms using the smallest ever pixels.
Beyond Tupac -- the future of hologram technology
Last week the world watched on as a supposed hologram of the late rapper Tupac Shakur performed at the Coachella music festival in California.
