Life-sized, human holograms could soon grace your living room

Life-sized, human holograms could soon grace your living room | Futuristic Technologies | Scoop.it

Whether it was Princess Leia or the shark from Back to the Future 2, there was likely a movie moment that made you wish holograms were not only real, but that you could have one. And while hologram projectors exist in today's world, they're far from a universally accepted bit of tech. But now, one of the leading names in hologram projection is hoping to create something that we'll all want to own: a human-sized hologram.

 

This is not some projected-on-glass quasi-hologram, either. HoloVision, as the product is being called, promises to be a free-floating, life-sized image which will hover an impressive eight feet from its projector. That's better than R2D2 can muster. It'll also be full color, leaving the astromechs of science fiction squarely in the dust.

 

There will be limitations, however. It's easy to think that a life-sized human being, standing in your living room, would be capable of giving you a hug, for instance. But if that breakthrough is coming, it hasn't arrived yet. Holodeck creations these are not. And images projected through the magic of HoloVision won't be able to follow you into the kitchen for a snack either — not unless you've got a whole network of HoloVision cameras, anyway.

 

But with those limitations aside, HoloVision really seems like it could become a part of our lives — if it comes to fruition. The company behind

 

HoloVision, Provision 3D Media, is currently running a Kickstarter in the hope of raising $950,000 to bring the tech to life. And while a human-sized hologram is their current goal, Provision sees the future of their products as being as large or small as we need them to be, entirely interactive, and fully integrated into our daily lives. Basically, they want to give us all Tony Stark's workshop. But that's down the line.

 

As for now, a life-sized full-color Princess Leia will have to do. Catch the video below to check out the HoloVision concept and how it might look if it becomes a reality.

1960s Braun Products Hold the Secrets to Apple's Future

1960s Braun Products Hold the Secrets to Apple's Future | Futuristic Technologies | Scoop.it

2008 marked " the 10th Anniversary of the iMac, the computer that changed everything at Apple, hailing a new design era spearheaded by design genius Jonathan Ive. What most people don't know is that there's another man whose products are at the heart of Ive's design philosophy, an influence that permeates every single product at Apple, from hardware to user-interface design. That man is Dieter Rams, and his old designs for Braun during the '50s and '60s hold all the clues not only for past and present Apple products, but their future as well:.."

A team of researchers at the Technological Corporation of the National Technology Canning and Food Centre (Coniun) -- in which the Conservation Technology Centre of the Region of Murcia is integrated -- presented an innovative packaging system for canned fresh products.

This is a new concept which makes it possible to improve the product quality and nutritional value due to the use of a high vacuum system that maintains all the properties and lowers production costs.

In addition, this research, development and innovation (R + D + i) project performed with the firms Auxiliar Conservera and SodetechSarl involves environmental improvements in the production system, as it significantly reduces energy costs and the time spent in the production process
