Spiderman: Far from home (2019) movie gave me several tingling moments, while watching in 3D. It isalmostafun packed movie with hilarious action sequences, isn’t it? Besides the admiration I got from Tom Holland and Gyllenhaal. I also got admired by ‘Augmented Reality tech and the savage drones’. However, we all know that these catastrophes would occur only in marvel movies and not in reality (well, maybe in future!). But wait, are there any coolest illusion technologies that have utilizing around the world today? Obviously, ‘yes’. We have probably heard about virtual reality and augmented reality, but what about Holographic Augmented Reality? Not really! Several Researches can refer Holographic AR as the next generation AR.
Hologram – An overview
Before pitch it in, let’s see a basic definition. A hologram can define as an image that is create through a photo projection in order to record light field rather than the typical image formed through using lens. It is moreover a 3-D representation on a 2-D object that can view without any 3-D glasses or other stuffs. The idea behind the hologram originate in the year 1893. The evolution of hologram till now, seemed to be a slower one. In 19th century, most of the celebrities’ likeness (e.g., Michael Jackson) was forcefully pictured as ‘hologram’. But, it was merely a magic trick using sheet of glass and a projector. Moreover, the first and foremost truth is about hologram is that, in reality it doesn’t be like the one that are portray in recent science- fiction movies.
Holographic Augmented Reality- PhD Research
Holographic AR simply extracts objects or people in real time from the real world, and make them plunge into the virtual environment where they can interact naturally with digital objects/elements. This holographic AR endows people to be in the place they wish to see like being in the bottom of the ocean or being in different planet, etc. It makes use of a Natural User Interface (NUI), where specific hand gestures, voice over commands, body movements, and facial expressions have successive responses and outcomes.
Laying the research groundwork
Like children and teens, even we (adults!) are also dreaming about the flying cars and friendly robots and moreover we are very sure about the futuristic hologram TV with realistic 3D experience into our living rooms. Apart from theselucrative dreams, researchers are trying to implement this tech in medical applications as reality such as exploring medical analytics, AR in medical devices, holographic guided surgery, etc.
Holographic Guided Surgery – As the introduction of AR seemed to be promising in image guided surgery, the proposed system make an attempt. To combine the Microsoft HoloLens with AR depend IGS system. This research focusses on improving the surgical depend interventions through presenting the image data directly to the patient at the correct position and orientation. It also emphasizes that, it can resolve switching focus problem that occurs in traditional surgical system. The surgeon has to look away from the surgical field in order to consult the image data. It is one promising PhD Research where errors can reduce and creates a more intuitive guidance approach.
Holographic Navigation on AR – PhD Research  stated that the Holographic Neuronavigation (HN) can use to improve the clinical accuracy. This research programmed a full functional neuronavigation system upon available smart glasses like Redmond, HoloLens, etc. Moreover, it has test through measuring its accuracy and feasibility in the operating rooms, where a stereoscopic sight of holograms has achieved. Due to the promising results, researchers believe that HN would find potential application in clinically operating rooms.
Business & Retail – These Holographic AR enables organizations to construct their own customizing experiences. Thus, delivering the customers with distinctive applications. On the other hand, it provides the employees,an open floor, where they can express their talent and innovative skills.
On the whole, what does the Holographic AR have us for future?!
The continuous evolution of Holographic AR will provide an interactive entertainment in families. It might also assist concerns that are found in classrooms. And to provide students with different learning procedure. People will experience a fantasy in a reality world or vice versa. The possibilities are numerous and endless. It depends upon the imagination of innovative minds. The progressive nature of interactive technology has fascinated all audiences who have follow with innovative findings both in hardware / software. Interactive – innovative reality is the extremely noticeable key point that promised us the innovation and expected excitement.
