Japanese developers are introducing the use of white light to create a glasses-free 3D and hologram experience. This is groundbreaking as many holograms that we’ve seen to date have been lacking in the color department. Expect to start seeing technology using this new development in the very near future.
How do they do it? Well, white light is beamed through three different angles onto a very thin metal film. Because of the angle and color differences of each beam, when the light shines through an RGB hologram, the end result is a 3D image in full color. To date, there hasn’t been a way to create holograms efficiently, but this should change everything.
The problem with hologram technology has always been the lack of color and limited viewing angles. But, as we’re seeing more 3D technology get rid of the glasses, this should propel things further. Already thinking of the ramifications? Yep, we are too. Imagine watching television on your coffee table instead of on a screen. Gaming with holograms could be the greatest gaming experience in history, so we’ll keep you posted as we learn more about the technology advancement here.
