When we founded Holofarm a couple of years ago, using holographic displays seemed far-fetched. But technology caught up with us. Time to put the ‘holo’ in Holofarm.
Virtual and augmented reality are interesting technologies with lots of potential, but in some cases they require too much effort from the viewer. Holograms on the contrary are a bit like modern billboards. They attract the audience in the blink of an eye, and grab their attention without asking anything in return. Be marveled by the sight of your own 3D-content in real life.
Brace yourself for a hot summer. Gladly our first holographic display comes in the form of a fan, bringing the coolness of 3D holograms.
Hypervsn projection units display video content using rotating blades of LEDs that create a 3D holographic effect, giving viewers the impression that the animated object is suspended in mid-air. Each motor has a 4 blade propeller on it, that uses a combination of chips, magnets and LEDS. As the blades with LEDs rotate, they create the illusion of an object floating in the air. The microprocessors and sensors pick up the angle, speed and position of each of the LEDs. They then send signals to each of the LEDs to create a realistic 3D image. The main hardware of the technology is a blade that emits a strip of light creating holograms of images and words.
Multiple blades can be synchronised for larger holograms. As soon as this piece of hardware spins, eyes stop seeing hardware but a hologram, and the piece of hardware spins fast enough so a human eye does not see any rotation, and it sees the amazing holographic image. Single projection unit called Hypervsn, Kino-mo also produces Hypervsn Wall, which is nothing but multiple units joined together to work synchronously allowing the creation of a hologram of pretty much any size and configuration. Report suggests that it is capable of a wall up to 10×20-metres in size.
The main advantage of this system is that it is scalable upto 10×20 meters in size, simply by adding more projectors to the wall. (source: Wonder World)
The Looking Glass
The Looking Glass is a new holographic display that lets you view, interact with, and share 3D creations in the real world. See whatever you put inside your Looking Glass — from a virtual pet to an architectural model or a CAD drawing of a rocket engine — come to life.
In contrary to the Hypervsn, this device can be linked up with Unity3D, giving us the freedom to create interactive user experiences.
Show, don’t tell.
Let the holograms speak for themselves. Feel free to contact us for a demo. We will gladly guide you around. The first visitors will receive a free custom made hologram.
