Hologram research

Now say what: Hologram research! You think visions from Star Trek are still far away? Then think twice. Because here we go with the latest insights into Hologram research.

The transparent pyramid - approach

The Cheoptics 360 is an invention from 2006 that was made by a team of Danish engineers and designers. It utilizes a four-sided transparent pyramid, so to develop a motion picture, that look "real" and "3D" from all point-of-views. So even if you wander around in the room.

The rotating mirror - approach

Much more charming is this here. It's a combination of a fast rotating mirror and a special projected animation from a videobeamer. In fact the computer generated animation of the computer is send through the beamer and synchronized to the rotation-speed of the mirror. The result is an optical illusion of a 3D-dimensional animation. I somehow really like this technique shown here, but you better not try to put your fingers into the hologram-animation. The researchers here used a special mirror, with a small degree of reflection. But maybe homebrewed experiments also could lead to some kind of selfmade hologram. Don't forget: at home you do it at your own risk!
