What are holograms good for anyway?

Today we borrow some content from Computerworld, more notably from Mike Elgan composing this piece titled, “The future of 3D holograms comes into focus.”

In it, Mike discusses some of the new technologies to look out for, including Microsoft’s Hololens
headset and a competitor from Magic Leap called “Lightware”.

While these Augmented Reality (AR) headsets are certainly exciting, PDT as partners with HYPERVSN
3D Holographic Display Technology, are more interested in answering your burning question by
relying on Mr. Elgan’s eloquence.

So, what are holograms good for, anyway?

“Think of hologram displays as the next step in making digital content more human-compatible,” says Mike. Humans see the world in 3D. Our computer and phone screens show us a 2D version of the world. It’s artificial.

If I look at a concept car design on my laptop, people on the other side of the room see only the back of my laptop lid.

A hologram projected in the middle of the room could show a 3D concept car for all to see, as if it were a physical object actually there.”

Mike goes on to suggest that, beyond its obvious retail applications, “Holograms will play a major role in enterprises – helping to improve training, design and visualisation.”

From our perspective we certainly believe the future of display (for a variety of applications) rests firmly in holographic technology. The products available have evolved so rapidly in the last few years that PDT, through our partnership with HYPERVSN, are able to deliver astonishing content for a large variety of industries, properties and practical use-cases
