Am I mistaken, or did the "hologram" of the whale only appear to those looking through their handheld devices? Didn't look like an actual hologram floating over the audience that could be seen with the naked eye. Or am I wrong?


You are correct. If you were there in the audience looking up above you, there would be no whale. It was added by CGI.

So this was a demo to show what could be possible, not something they are actively doing? Don't get me wrong, I love technology and progress, but their demo seemed to be a let down.

Not exactly...

Leviathan - A Whale of a Tale


If you were lucky enough to be in the audience for Intel CEO Brian Krzanich’s keynote at CES 2014 you would have witnessed the spectacle of a gigantic whale flying over your head, a demonstration of the storytelling world ‘Leviathan,’ developed by the USC World Building Media Lab in collaboration with Intel.

Definately a play on words. You could see the whale alright, not unless you were using an occulus rift type of device or by viewing a video of yourself viewing the whale above your head. It must of still been cool if done correctly.


“It’s a traditional cinematic experience,” she said. “But then it then transitions to an augmented reality mode, where an audience member can pick up an Ultrabook, can point it at the screen and register the marker, and once they got through their position in space then we can make the whale fly out of the traditional cinematic two dimensional screen and fly into the audience space itself.”

Not a hologram per se, but I never said it was. All I said was that they were showing off from last years event. No harm I hope. I'm sorry if I got anybody excited.

Here is more about the technology they used...


The “Leviathan” experience involves a core set of technologies that project the whale, the key character in the narrative on a screen. Then, through the use of either an Occulus Rift helmet, 2 in 1 device or a tablet, you are able to see the whale as if it were right in front of you.

“You have a server (computer) that’s running the whale itself, which is a very large and complex animated object flying around in an environment,” said Schlieski. “Then we use Metaio 3D Augmented Reality to scan the physical environment we are in, whether it be the auditorium or booth at CES, and then we fly the whale inside the virtual environment.”

The net effect is that it appears, if you are looking at a device like a tablet or 2 in 1, as though the whale is in the room with you. When you consider that the whale is a 1,000 feet long, in virtual reality, that sensation can shift how you feel about the intertwining of the digital and physical worlds.

I also highlighted a stereoscopic form to show how different technologies could be used to achieve similar results. I should have been more clear. Apologies

OK.. You got me


I suppose I should have said if you were looking up with your unaided eye.

You are correct. I admit the confusion and should have been more clear. To retain the illusion, if you had an Oculus Rift headset on you would still see the stage and audience as though you weren't wearing it. Except there would be a giant whale flying around you. Nice catch and apologies.

100 years from now movies are gonna look so cool if that stuff goes mainstream. i think there is an exhibit in dubai that features 3D holograms. imagine when avatar 4 or 5 comes out and its all 3d holograms. or video games or skype or anything that uses video. wicked.

Right -- but most people wouldn't call that a hologram, because it isn't a hologram.
Instead, it is a CGI whale that is being projected onto video monitors placed in front of your eyes.

A holographic whale would be one that is projected into the air for anyone to see with there own eyes (without wearing video monitor goggles).

Thinking about this some more has made a few ideas cross my mind, a working holodeck of sorts could in theory be used to train doctors/nurses/firemen/military etc with zero injury rate to perfect their respective skills. Heck if the holograms were atomically accurate one could even simulate reactions on the atomic scale which would otherwise be impossible or to dangerous to do in reality.

Why do we need all this ?

I love the question.

It's hard to know what we'll need in the future because it's hard to know how we'll change and what we'll be capable of.

It's so massively beyond our comprehension. Science fiction authors struggle mightily to answer these questions all their lives and yet only some years after their books are published it's frequently found to be idiotic and/or old fashioned. Sometimes they get it right, but most of the time they don't. And yet this is the joy of science fiction. Trying to get it right is fun.

If holograms cannot physically interact then I'd imagine their usefulness will be information-based or merely aesthetic in nature.

The beauty of augmented reality is it's likely to happen before actual holograms because it's software-oriented, as opposed to actual holograms which will need more serious hardware. And augmented holograms do not have to abide by any physical laws, like bad weather or obstructions - actual holograms might not work well in some conditions.

It has been magically edited to clarify. If anything, that video represents the excess meat that sticks out of your sandwich. It's not the main portion, but still gets digested. Happy now?



Any other ways you would find holographic displays useful? How do you see them fitting in to our everyday lives?

That's some awesome technology. The world will never be the same when it becomes cheap and mass produced.

Head shakes no
Only a real functioning holodeck OR NOTHING

Just imagine a clothing line like this, which changed according to what you wanted!

I don't think it will last long! I give holographics two decades before being reduced to a small and specialized market segment.

What is on the horizon is direct sensory input to your brain. All five sensors engaged and you will not be able to tell it from reality.

Many movies have had this theme and it is an interesting one. Yes, porn would be amazing but so to, going to work without leaving your house.

The future of humanity is either very bright or very bleak, depending on your choice to look at tech being used to benefit or enslave.

Such is our future, assuming we don't have a mass extinction event.

P

Agreed. Holographic technology will appear first and everyone will be amazed at it's capabilities, then comes along direct sensory input in which you can fulfill your wildest dreams. I'm guessing AI will be somewhere in between.

Just imagine what this could do for entertainment, being immersed in your movies and video games literaly.

From this technology the solid light and ultrasound stuff may be next, actually touching your holograms, and them touching you back.

Driving down the street in your hologram car which is faster than any non hologram vehicle just like TRON FTW.
