    Barbie becomes a hologram version of herself

    Yes, after pulling herself out of her 1950’s rut as a swimsuit model to become everything from a doctor, lawyer, computer scientist, astronaut and even the president of the United States, Barbie has now become a 3D-animated hologram that can serve up the weather on command. As first reported in Wired, The Hello Barbie Hologram debuted at the New York Toy Fair this week. And like… Read More

  • Researchers pack massive amounts of data into a stream of light Crunch Network

    Researchers pack massive amounts of data into a stream of light

    If you’re hungry for a little holographic data storage and transfer this morning have I got a flapjack for you. Researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg have packed 100 times more data into a light stream by using a pair of holographic Spatial Light Modulators to encode and decode transmissions. Their paper, which has been published in Nature, details a… Read More

    Here’s What Watching The Super Bowl With Microsoft’s HoloLens Could Look Like

    Watching sports could soon be a very different experience — at least if it’s up to Microsoft and the NFL. Before you know it, a holographic player could be charging through your walls and replays could play in 3D on your coffee table. Microsoft today released a new concept for its HoloLens augmented reality goggles that shows off its vision for what the combination of sports… Read More

  • Next step in 3D tech: Computer-synthesized holograms (video)

    Our friends over at Tokyo-based DigInfoNews are calling it the “ultimate in 3D images”: computer-synthesized holograms. And in fact, the video they shot at Kansai University in Osaka shows some amazing tech a team of researchers led by Prof. Kyoji Matsushima is working on. In contrast to conventional holography, the researchers are not using real objects but rather CG images created… Read More

  • New technology makes it possible to view 3D color holograms of moving objects

    Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has developed a new 3D electronic holography production technology doing away with lasers or darkrooms. Based on integral photography, moving objects can be taken on video under normal lighting conditions with a fly-eye lens and then be displayed as color holograms. Conventional holography techniques… Read More
