Growing up, you probably watched a bunch of sci-fi movies featuring holographic technology and couldn’t help but wonder if and when it would become a reality. Well, buckle up because it looks like your dreams are coming true! While the term “hologram” is commonly used to describe anything with CGIs, the legit holographic technology can be created through an illusion technique named the “pepper’s ghost”.
What’s the big deal about holographic technology?
To properly create and use holographic technology, you’ll need equipment that helps create 3D illusions. It requires augmented reality headsets, a smartphone or a tabled-based AR, and lastly, a holographic screen, which is where the magic happens. Even though these gadgets can allow you to have an excellent holographic experience but, there are still some downsides to it. Yes, it’s not all fun and games as these gadgets come with their own set of problems and disadvantages. For starters, the AR headsets are pretty expensive, and they don’t provide you the enjoyment worth giving up your laptop. Not only that but, even though smartphones and tablets are easy to use, they offer limited visual experience.
To New Beginnings
However, things are about to change. Be prepared to say goodbye to your traditional holographic technology as a San Mateo-based Startup readies itself to make holographic collaboration more efficient and user-friendly.
For over 12 years, Campfire has created campaigns and strategies to launch new entertainment franchises and products. They specialize in world-class participatory programs and immersive experiences that will re-shape the fan cultures and encourage the spreading of awareness. They seem to be doing just that as the company has recently announced a product system that presents holographic collaboration between colleagues.
What makes this product so special is that it has designers and engineers that work on holographic 3D models in real-time. With the help of an AR headset system that is easily integrated within computers, tablets, and laptops, people from across the world can collaborate through the holographic 3D model. For instance, let’s suppose there is a group of architects working on a project. They can easily observe and understand the model through this holographic 3D model while staying in the comfort of their homes.
