Bringing a Hologram to life with Holovision

In a world of 3 dimensions, we longing for depth.  In so many Science Fiction movies, we see people who communicate using a 3 dimensional viewing apparatus.  For starters, check out Star Wars,  “Help me Obi-Wan Kanobi, Your my only hope”, one of the biggest lines in television was given through a Hologram Image, not bad right?
 

We have been searching for a way to create this Hologram technology for years.  Figure that the image of Princess Leia has been taunting poor Obi-Wan since 1977.  We have seen even more enhancements to the idea in concepts such as Star Trek’s holo-deck, a room that would bring to life any dream you could pull out of your head.  One big question I have however for the holow-deck, is the food eaten in the world you visit real? Things that make you go Hmmmm.  Imagine creating food from pure energy and light.

In today’s technology, we have some images with 3D feel.  I have in my home what is called a 3D TV.  I have to were a set of glasses to see the image displayed in 3D.  The glasses correct the image displayed on the television so it appears to my minds eye, to be a real 3 dimensional object.  Well it gives it a good go at it any-way.

My favorite hologram however is the little man that jumps outta the skull at Ripley’s believe it or not museum in NYC.  Using glass and reflective projections from different angles, Ripley’s give a real impression of a little fellow popping out of the skull and talking to you before disappearing back in the skull.  They also have a Leprechaun that gives a little show before falling into his black bucket for his coins in Florida.

 

The question is, will there ever be a real hologram.  Holovision is trying to offer us the next step in entertainment by giving us a true 3 Dimensional display.  They plan on doing this without glasses or headgear.  They have several ways that they are working on trying to get a hologram to work and bring it to our homes.

Imagine a human sized, floating hologram projected from a 3D display.The hologram requires no special glasses, no virtual reality goggles, and literally hovers in air standing next to you!
