You may remember the scene from The Avenger Endgame Movie where Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes one of the avenger was having a heated conversation with the Mr. Secretary from The United Nations and Captain America and team joins him in the middle of the conversation, if you clearly see Mr. Secretary was actually present there holographically.
This is one of the example which is shown in the avenger movie where all of them are meeting hographichally and at the end Rhodey disconnect the connection and says “Thats a court-martial“
Another example is actually very specific to Holographic Meetings and shown years back in a Movie called Kingsman – The Secret Service.
I still seek the reason why all members has the same holographic cup?
Do they really use Holograms to soot this type of scene in movies ?
No, this is of course built using Computer Graphics but the idea here is actually really cool, what do you think?
It’s not Fictional and Dream Anymore…
It took almost 70 years to develop the concept of hologram and to make it available worldwide. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) were a mystery to many people until 2016 when Pokémon GO brought the AR game experience.
Oculus Rift transformed the VR headset section. Companies are beginning to understand these technologies that are not limited to gaming and entertainment.
What’s going on?
True Augmented (AR) technology, which is used as an app on mobile devices, puts digital objects above the user’s live viewing experience.
Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer simulation or real-life pastime. It closes the real world and immerses the user in the simulated action, especially by refreshing their vision and hearing.
Mixed Reality (MR) is the most recent development of this technology that combines AR and VR knowledge.
Hologram is a three-dimensional (3D) visual representation that is freely available in space and created using lasers and light. The set light produces bright, immersive 3D images that can be viewed simultaneously by many people from different angles with a realistic view.
Now six months into the epidemic, it is not uncommon to have a work meeting, a doctor’s appointment, and a happy hour without leaving your desk. And our new Zoom lifestyle isn’t going away anytime soon. With the cold weather in the corner, you can rely on spending many hours on video chats and very little time to see people in real life. A small startup called Spatial thinks this is an opportunity to change the way we work together in digital spaces.
The founders of Spatial are incredibly excited about the unpredictable reality of taxpayers we see. You may have encountered AR, a technology that promotes digital photography in the real world, during the Pokémon Go craze four years ago. But instead of making it look like Pikachu is in your living room, Location makes it seem like your co-workers are – or at least their real avatars. The site also works with virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Quest, which puts you in a completely immersive digital environment, but the company’s founders seem to be very high on AR and the future where we will all wear lightweight glasses that blur the line between the real world and the computer interface.
The founders of Spatial say they want to build a real Google Docs that is unpopular with the taxpayers we see. The concept is surprisingly simple: Location provides a visual space where groups of people can work together on projects. (While trying Spatial on the Oculus Quest VR headset, the app also works on Microsoft’s HoloLens and Magic Leap One, which are two leading AR titles. There are iOS and Android versions in beta.)
Once you have created an avatar, you can join the rooms, which you will do in Zoom, and you can connect with the avatars of your friends or co-workers. You can talk to them and see their real face types, and roam the room, watch videos together, and give high-fives.
This all sounds fun – and expensive. The introduction of any new technology also carries unintended consequences. Smartphones have raised all sorts of concerns about how much time we spend looking at screens, and there’s every reason to believe that immersive technology as unpopular with the taxpayers we see will also have psychological consequences. Creating new digital posts also allows for more releases. Consider how the digital divide has led to a very different experience during the epidemic, as many online users enjoy the benefits of long-distance work and learning while those without this access, or the option to go far, find it difficult to keep up.
Then there are concerns about what technology itself can do. If you think smart glasses will be equipped with cameras and other sensors, they are likely to introduce a lot of privacy concerns. Todd Richmond, an IEEE member and director of Tech & Narrative Lab at the Pardee RAND Graduate School for Public Policy, suggested that advanced face recognition technology could work with intelligent mirrors, so users could start photographing passersby and access information about their identity in real time. So while it may seem impressive to have an assembly full of holograms, the same technology that empowers that experience can have applications that can be dangerous elsewhere.
“We are at a time when the world is struggling, and we have to come up with equitable and sustainable technological solutions,” Richmond said. “And that’s a difficult thing to do because it’s hard enough to make technology work.”
