Scientists working with the Beijing Institute of Technology
have created a hologram that can be seen by the naked eye,
and can pop out of a screen to a larger size.

This breakthrough makes actual screen sizes virtually irrelevant,
using a special material which allows light to pass through differently.



The revolutionary nano-hologram was designed by an Australian-Chinese research team at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), which was behind the research. The technology is simple to make, can be seen without 3D googles, and is 1,000 times thinner than a human hair.

This means it could be integrated into mobile devices, according to the research paper published in Nature Communications. Unlike 3D images, holographic projections allow viewers to move around and see the projection from different perspectives and angles.


That is the most facsinating aspect of this break though, to be able to
walk around the image see it without 3D glasses!

Yep, have to say it!

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi your my only hope!

Damn! We're going so fast.

Part of me wants technology to slow down and give humanity a chance to weigh up the long-term pros and cons. It's daunting sometimes and we never seem to look where we're going.

Rest of me is 'Woohah we're getting holographic displays!'

I had the exact same thoughts!

Being in a lighter mood today I just focused on the fun part!

Apple, Samsung, Google or MS will probably fund it, patent it and launch it ASAP. Cue the usual litigation over infringements.


Imagine what it'll do for the movie industry? They're all about the immersive goggles. This might offer something more social. Life-sized characters getting their Kung Fu on right in your home.

I can see this taking off with speed. The 3D glasses thing
out of the way, it is more realistic and life like.

Nothing in the way to interfere, yes Kung Fu!

Imagine taking private Martial Arts lessons in your
own living room with your hologram instructor!

Also the possibilities in other fields, and the data restrictions
off, not a scientist but that seems really exciting.

George Lucas will be re-re-re-re-releasing the Star Wars franchise all over again.


Any other contenders? Two words.

Porn industry.

Possibilities there seem endless!

I haven't looked into the Holometer lately,
there might be some interesting developments
advancements as of late!

I agree.

I think more thought needs to go into what we are accepting into our lives, and the lives of our children. While it seems exciting, we all know that you can't put the genie back into the bottle, so I would like to see a little more caution from the masses.

Yet another amazing new technology. As all of the new things cross-pollinate and each new invention inspires a new invention we would be overwhelmed with increasing augmentation of reality and deep reliability invested in people that wouldn't abuse new inventions.

That potential is very real too, thinking along
lines of that, I came across this short university
paper, it touches on that aspect without being
overly academic and boring.

Augmented reality seems to be one place this tech could seem to
Be helpful at first in small ways, then creep in and overtake
the beneficial aspects.

I don't think people realize how quickly hologram technology had progressed over the past few years.



Trying to find other vids. This isn't even the best I've seen.

This one's fun.

There are also virtual anatomy tables. It's not a hologram or even a 3D screen, but if they made that change, it would be awesome:

Along with the Doctors without Borders libel against our company’s work, many smartphone companies made claims in the same article, saying that Holographicine’s work and the development of holograms used for everyday communication will not only socially cripple the world in the future, but also provide the world with a wealth of terrifying issues. They claimed that, once holograms are attainable for everyday use, people will cease to participate in human-to-human interaction and only communicate through the media of holograms. They claimed that holograms would make people even lazier than they are today and more dependent on their technology than they are today, slowly shifting the world from its real, alive state, to a virtual, completely online state. They claimed that holographic communication will give people no reason to go out into the world to see others or do work, that holograms will change the world as we know it, and not for the best.

This made me laugh, until I realized I was crying.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
